Blueprint Two-Year Anniversary

Happy 2-Year Anniversary to the Continuity of Care Blueprint!

Two years ago, on August 24, 2021, the Continuity of Care (CoC) in Breastfeeding Support: A Blueprint for Communities was launched! 

NACCHO would like to thank CDC’s Division of Nutrition Physical Activity and Obesity (DNPAO) and the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee, our main partners in advancing this work, and everyone who engaged with this work! Thank you to everyone who shared one of the 150+ CoC resources to continue building up our Continuity of Care Resource Library, each of the 2,100+ individuals who downloaded and promoted the Blueprint, the 20+ webinar speakers, and 5000+ attendees of our #EveryStepOftheWay Continuity of Care Webinar Series, as well as if you have implemented any of the Blueprint strategies in your communities. A special shout-out goes to our second cohort of Blueprint grantees and their partners. In 2022 – 2023, NACCHO successfully funded 7 diverse communities across the nation to implement recommendations of the Blueprint. Each grantee and their respective partners worked to implement their unique combination of Blueprint recommendations to advance continuity of care in their communities.
