In the June session of Hot Topics in Practice, the Northwest Public Health Leadership Institute and the University of Washington Center of Excellence in Maternal and Child Health welcome lactation consultant Camie Goldhammer to discuss how communities of color, especially Native American communities, are reclaiming breastfeeding as an indigenous food source.

In this one-hour webinar, Goldhammer will use storytelling to explain how breastfeeding was historically discouraged among indigenous communities, the barriers that created, and what leaders are doing to address historical trauma and bring it back. She will also review how public health professionals from across many disciplines and departments can support breastfeeding through their work today.
