AMC gets breastfeeding award

Posted on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 at 1:12 pm

Audrain County Health Department (ACHD) presented Audrain Medical Center (AMC) with a Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite Award (Silver Standard).
There are three standards to the award: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. AMC is the first worksite in Audrain County to receive the breastfeeding friendly worksite award (silver standard). 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 and one of their strategies is to increase the number of employers in Audrain County recognized as Missouri Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite by September 1, 2015. Congratulations to Audrain Medical Center for becoming a Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite! Keep up the great work!
