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.

February 7 is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD). NBHAAD was founded 18 years ago to bring attention to the growing HIV and AIDS epidemic in black communities. This year’s theme, “Together for Love: Stop HIV Stigma,” emphasizes the idea that working together is key to stopping HIV stigma. The Florida Department of Health joins community partners across the country to emphasize the importance of getting educated, tested and treated to receive the continuum of care needed to live a healthful life with HIV/AIDS.
