Thanks to the generous support of the Alaska Breastfeeding Coalition, a limited number of awards are available to provide full or partial support Alaska Native lactation or maternal and young child health workers’ participation in this year’s conference. The vision of the Alaska Breastfeeding Coalition is to provide support to talented and dedicated individuals who are new, emerging, or aspiring breastfeeding leaders, actively promoting maternal and child health, and breastfeeding support in their Tribes.  Individuals who are actively involved in collaborative efforts to support breastfeeding in underserved Alaska Native communities are encouraged to apply.

Additionally, preference will be given to applicants who have never attended an Alaska Breastfeeding Conference and for whom attendance may not be possible without this support.
