Case Study: Dallas WIC Community Collaborative Training Initiative
Breastfeeding success includes a combination of early assistance and support in the hospital and continuity of support from the community. Partnerships between Local WIC agencies and health care facilities are critical in helping both the initiation and duration of breastfeeding. The Dallas WIC Community Collaborative Training Initiative is an example of how these collaborations can make an impact in the community between your health care facility and breastfeeding moms.
