NYS Breastfeeding Webinar Features Mercy Cares For Kids

The School of Public Health, a partnership between the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the University at Albany, recently hosted its 2015 Breastfeeding Grand Rounds, “Breastfeeding and the Workplace: Success Takes a Team.”

In addition to several speakers, the webinar also included a video discussing the breastfeeding-friendly designation program for child care centers in New York state. Featured in the video was Mercy Cares For Kids (MCFK), which was the first early childhood center in Albany County designated by the NYSDOH as a Best Practices for Breastfeeding Center.

The video features interviews with MCFK Infant 1 Head Teacher Karan Mercadante and Center Director Theresa Joslin. The video also included a parent’s perspective, provided by Amanda Weller, volunteer recruiter for St. Peter’s Hospital.

The video, produced by the Center for Public Health Continuing Education (CPHCE), can be viewed below:
