Nominations for ECABS Awards Nears Deadline

The Emerald Coast Alliance for Breastfeeding Support will again celebrate World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month in August with a special meeting to honor physicians and breastfeeding supporters who go above and beyond the norm in their support, protection and promotion of breastfeeding. We would like your help in this endeavor.

Nominations for these awards can be made at our website: This site provides an ongoing opportunity for nominations. Anyone may complete a nomination for a breastfeeding supporter who meets the criteria for either award: the Frankie Mims Spirit of Service Award and the Physician Leadership Award. The ECABS board will evaluate the nominees and select the final recipients of the awards. The awards will be made at the August National Breastfeeding Month Celebration. Nominations will be accepted year-round with this year’s deadline for nominations being July 16, 2013.

Any suggestions you would like to give for our celebration would be greatly appreciated. Please make plans to attend the celebration, August 15th, 2013 at Sacred Heart Hospital, Pensacola, FL. Further information will be forthcoming.
