  • Ensure that there are state and local laws and policies protecting breastfeeding
  • Increase knowledge, skills, and positive perceptions related to breastfeeding among Nebraska healthcare providers
  • Identify breastfeeding as a vital public health issue
  • Create and maintain a positive environment supportive and accepting of breastfeeding

Values

  • Integrity- We act honestly and ethically.
  • Credibility- We disseminate evidence-based information and promote best practices.
  • Inclusion- We respect cultural differences and seek diversity in our membership.
