With the goal of reducing the risk of childhood obesity and promoting evidence-based prevention strategies among pregnant and postpartum women

February 2, 2011 -- Oregon hospitals are involved in an effort to encourage breastfeeding among new mothers.

A summit is being held May 23 at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center to create a collaborative learning community focused on evidence-based practice. Sponsored by Oregon Hospitals Partnering for Evidence-Based Infant Nutrition, a project launched by the Breastfeeding Coalition of Oregon, health insurers are lending their support along with the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems.
