Research & Surveillance Committee
The CBC has been actively researching breastfeeding among Connecticut residents. Previous studies have examined perceptions and beliefs of male partners of breastfeeding mothers, teen mothers, WIC mothers residing in an urban setting and breastfeeding best practices in academic settings. Research findings from former Research & Surveillance Chair, Michele Vancour, are in the process of dissemination. For more information on these projects please email.
