Breastfeeding Newsletter - "Breastmilk provides immunity against illnesses"
Along with flu season come concerns about breastfeeding while sick. Many breastfeeding mothers who catch a flu or a bug are approached by concerned friends and family members questioning whether they should still breastfeed while they are sick. The answer is YES, they should still breastfeed!
Building Capital Campaign
Pike County Health Department, Home Care and Hospice launched a $1 million capital campaign, "Helping Hands. . . Caring Hearts," on September 2009 to raise funds for a new facility. A new facility will enable us to operate out of one building instead of two to fully serve the residents of Pike County..
A variety of fund raising events are being held along with one on one visits to area businesses, organizations, churches and residents.
