Overview

We developed a training curriculum that teaches the core competencies needed to provide community-based leadership, training and education relative to breastfeeding. The interactive curriculum includes a training manual; a CD-ROM of PowerPoint presentations; handouts; reference and other materials, such as “Breastfeeding: A Parent’s Guide”; and videos. The effort was supported by the US Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).
