The New Mexico Breastfeeding Taskforce (NMBTF) promotes breastfeeding and supports mothers, families, and communities by helping to create supportive environments in which breastfeeding is the cultural norm. The purpose of NMBTF is to bridge the gap in breastfeeding disparities by ensuring all families have the support they need to reach their breastfeeding goals.

Their Annual Conference in March will feature industry experts who will discuss topics on advanced breastfeeding concepts, challenges facing and solutions for breastfeeding families, the latest healthcare findings regarding breastfeeding and other family and community-focused topics. The two-day conference will feature several breakout sessions and keynote speakers, Dr. Niles Bergman. There will also be networking opportunities for those attending.
