Rural healthcare professionals attending Breastfeeding Basics and Problem-Solving have identified the need for a training focused on breastfeeding in high-risk situations. Data indicates that women in Western North Carolina are initiating breastfeeding, but are not meeting the duration goals set by Healthy People 2020 and are often stopping breastfeeding due to lack of support and misinformation related to breastfeeding. The healthcare professional in rural settings is often the sole source of support for breastfeeding women and needs more in depth breastfeeding knowledge related to breastfeeding in high-risk situations. The goal of MAHEC's Project ECHO: Supporting Breastfeeding in High-Risk Situations is to provide evidence-based information on breastfeeding with diabetes, obesity, and medication-assisted treatment.

***Funding for this training has been provided through the Region 1 Lactation Training Center.
