PABC was formed in 1992 when Judith Gallagher, Director of the Bureau of MCH Preventive Health Programs at the PA Department of Health, convened a group of interested people in Harrisburg. We met for the first few years under their auspices. Now we are an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit. Our funding comes from dues., grants, and charitable contributions.
We work as part of the United States Breastfeeding Committee (USBC)
