Rio Arriba Chapter

Chapter Co-Chairs:  Ysabel Romero & Amy Myzsko

The Rio Arriba chapter meetings are open to all breastfeeding advocates, providers, partner organizations and breastfeeding families. We help normalize breastfeeding by being in the community at events and health fairs and to support and empower parents and families thru our projects and our support group. Recently we have partnered with community members in Chama to extend our support and services further in our county.
