The program is a collaboration to educate employers on the value of providing lactation support in the workplace and to recognize businesses that support their breastfeeding employees.

North Central Missouri College in Trenton was awarded the Gold status due to lactation
equipment they provide to students and staff, availability of resources, as well as their family friendly policies. Livingston county health center also received a gold award. Chillicothe Correctional Center received a Silver award and is taking additional steps to achieve Gold status. Grand River Health Care of Chillicothe also received a Silver Award.

According to Livingston county health center: employer support of breastfeeding provides
many benefits to businesses including cost savings of $3 per one dollar invested in nursing support; reduced absenteeism to care for sick children because breastfed infants have less illness; lower health care costs; improved employee productivity with higher morale and greater employee loyalty; and increased ability to attract and retain employees. If you have a business and would like to learn more about becoming a Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite or the requirements, call 646-5506 and ask to speak to Rachel Snider, Breastfeeding Peer Counselor at the Health Center.

In recognition of American Heart Month, Livingston County Health Center is offering “Hands-Only” CPR at their office on Friday, February 14th over the noon hour. Those interested should call to
reserve a spot, (646 5506) as there are only ten kits available per session. Those who can’t come at noon should call to find out about an alternate time on Friday. Hands-Only CPR is without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by people who see a teen or adult suddenly collapse in an “out-of-hospital” setting such as at home, at work or in a park. It consists of two steps: Call 9-1-1 (or send someone to do that). Then push hard and fast in the center of the chest.
