CHEER moves forward with new Bower grant

The Bower Foundation has funded CHAMPS (Communities and Hospitals Advancing Maternity Practices), to sustain Baby-Friendly practices in Mississippi for another 3 years.

CHAMPS is a program of CHEER (The Center for Health Equity, Education, and Research) at the Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine.

The new grant will allow CHAMPS to help Mississippi hospitals to meet revised Baby-Friendly requirements. It will also include maternity workforce training, hospital workplace lactation support, and promotion of the Breastfeeding | Human Medicine Interprofessional Education (IPE) module.
