This interactive webinar, the third in the NACCHO Public Health Breastfeeding Series, will address how local health departments (LHDs), community based organizations (CBOs) and other public health professionals can better support communities with low breastfeeding rates by engaging and retaining women and families who are traditionally classified as hard-to-reach. Participants will hear from two former NACCHO Breastfeeding Project grantees who successfully engaged their communities and established or enhanced programs to serve teenage, African American or low income mothers who faced structural barriers to breastfeeding at optimal levels.

Learning Objectives:
1. List at least two barriers that cause certain groups of women to breastfeed at suboptimal rates and be classified as hard-to-reach.
2. Describe the role of community engagement in reaching mothers who are traditionally classified as hard-to-reach.
3. List at least two strategies public health professionals can use to retain breastfeeding support interaction with hard-to-reach mothers.
