PHCN DPG's Spotlight Session - Building Health Equity: Transforming WIC Support for Black/African American Families: Monday, October 7, from 3:30-4:30 PM 

CinnaMoms was founded with the goal of increasing breastfeeding rates among Black/African American women at the PHFE WIC Program. CinnaMoms created support circles to provide encouragement and a safe space to learn and talk about historical feeding practices, perceptions of breastfeeding, familial feeding experiences, and the health benefits of breastfeeding.

CinnaMoms transformed into a space where discussions on culturally relevant topics and beliefs were interweaved with acknowledgement of the systemic policies contributing to the devastating and damaging effects on Black/African American families. In speaking the language of the community, CinnaMoms embraces the national strategy highlighted by the five pillars presented at the most recent White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. CinnaMoms recently launched a nontraditional WIC center, CinnaMoms Crenshaw, focused on re-introducing the WIC program to the community. By providing a safe space designed by and for Black/African American WIC participants, still with the core intention of increasing breastfeeding rates, cultural spaces have been created that promote and recognize all of those who support the growth, empowerment, and self-transformation of the WIC participant and their family. In providing services and support to improve health outcomes, CinnaMoms Crenshaw continues to exhibit the natural progression of the CinnaMoms model.
