ECABS National Breastfeeding Month Awards Night

The Emerald Coast Alliance for Breastfeeding Support will again celebrate World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month this month 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 will be honoring Amy Foland, MD, FAAP, the 2015 recipient of the Physician Leadership Award and Christy Beitel, RN, BSN, IBCLC, the 2015 recipient of the Frankie Mims Spirit of Service Award.

Please make plans to attend the celebration this Thursday night, August 13th in the MOB meeting room at Sacred Heart Hospital at 6:30pm. The meeting room is south of the main entrance to SHH that faces Ninth Avenue. It is across the hall from the Lecture Hall. There is limited parking on the Ninth Avenue side of the hospital, as well as parking in the parking garage and surface lot on the north side, where you can enter through the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, or through the Nemours/Medical Office building.
