Tracy is an incredible nurse, breastfeeding supporter, and Leadership Team Member. She works daily within healthcare to provide accurate and caring information for all families. Through her own person struggles with breastfeeding, she realized that she could make an impact for the mother's and baby's that she helps each day. We are proud of Tracy and the support that she provides for the families in her community. Come read Tracy's interview and get to know why we think she's so awesome.

  • “The Community Breastfeeding Initiative grants provided by the Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition have been the catalyst for our area in Southeast Nebraska to build breastfeeding advocacy and support services. The five counties of Southeast Nebraska that make up our Southeast Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition included some knowledgeable and passionate individuals, but the support of the Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition allowed us to bring those people together, to build a base of professional breastfeeding providers, to educate and advocate, and to form a coalition that continues to meet and look at gaps, barriers, needs, and opportunities in our community to increase breastfeeding rates and support.” – Brooke Chaney, Southeast District Health Department
