In 2014, the Healthy Columbia Willamette Collaborative created Community Health Improvement Teams (C-HITs), comprised of content experts, to develop work plans and evaluation protocols for community health improvement strategy areas including the promote of breastfeeding/breast milk support, and prevention of prescription opioid misuse.

The results of these projects are below.

Lactation in the Workplace Toolkit

The Healthy Columbia Willamette Collaborative Lactation in the Workplace Toolkit was created by content experts from HCWC member organizations, as part of the HCWC Breastfeeding Community Health Improvement Team. The toolkit was completed in July 2016 and is available in Microsoft Word and PDF formats. A Power Point of the Training for Managers/Supervisors (referenced in the toolkit) is also available below. These documents are meant to be adapted to meet the needs of different organizations.
