Community R-VI recently received a Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite award. There are three standards; Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
The Audrain County Health Department’s goal is to help support other worksites in Audrain County to be recognized as being breastfeeding friendly. ACHD is part of the HEAL (Healthy Eating Active Living) program which is sponsored by the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS).
One of ACHDs strategies is to increase the number of employers in Audrain County recognized as Missouri Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite by September 1, 2016. Recognition is through the State of Missouri- Department of Health and Senior Services and the Audrain County Health Department. Congratulations goes to Community R-VI for becoming a Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite! Keep up the great work!
