Hello to all of our KBC Members, Staff, Board of Directors and Partners.
As the end of the year approaches I thought it would be a good idea to reflect on this past year. It has been yet another touch and go year with COVID-19 and I hope you all are staying healthy and doing your part to minimize the spread as much as possible. If you have any questions or need more education about COVID and the vaccine, the KBC has a webpage of COVID resources.
There has also been as great deal of talk nationally about efforts to families. Check out our new First 1,000 Days advocacy program to keep track of federal and state policies for families.
As we transition into the new year I'd like to formally welcome our new Co-Executive Director of the KBC, Jennie Toland. She brings a fresh and new approach to protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding, alongside Brenda Bandy. I see a bright future ahead with all things breastfeeding for Kansas!
Thank you so much for all that you do,
Stephanne Rupnicki, CLC
Chair, KBC Board of Directors
