DOH-PASCO PILOTS “BABY ON BOARD” PROGRAM FOR BREASTFEEDING EMPLOYEES

Full Story
The Florida Department of Health in Pasco County (DOH-Pasco) is piloting a new program, Baby on Board, which allows exclusively breastfeeding mothers to bring their babies to work with them until the baby is 6 months old. The program was introduced in January 2018, just six months after DOH-Pasco received a Gold Level Florida Breastfeeding Friendly Employer Award in June 2017. The Florida Breastfeeding Coalition presents this award to recognize organizations that provide support in the workplace to their breastfeeding employees.

Staying healthy and feeling your best is important at every age. There will be some changes that take place with getting older, but it doesn't have to mean disability and it doesn't have to mean disease. Regardless of your age, you can take action to maintain good health as well as reduce your risk of developing chronic disease. It’s never too late!
