ACHD presents WERDCC with award

Posted on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 3:40 pm

The Audrain County Health Department (ACHD) presented The Women’s Eastern Reception, Diagnostic, and Correctional Center with a Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite Award (Gold Standard).
There are three standards; Gold, Silver, and Bronze. ACHD’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, 2015.
If you have any questions or would like more information about the Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite Award, feel free to contact Jodi Elliott at 573-581-1332.
