|Subject:||Resolution Designating August 1-7, 2017, as “World Breastfeeding Week”|
|In the near future, I will introduce a resolution designating August 1-7, 2017, as “World Breastfeeding Week” in Pennsylvania.
World Breastfeeding Week was created by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action, a group which advocates for a concerted global action to support women who breastfeed. This year’s theme for World Breastfeeding Week is “Sustaining Breastfeeding Together.” It is well known that breastfeeding provides ideal nutrition for infants and contributes to their healthy growth and development, while providing long-term health benefits to women and yielding economic benefits.
The intent of this resolution is to support the overall goals of World Breastfeeding Week in creating greater awareness about the benefits of breastfeeding and its role in enhancing the wellbeing of all worldwide. I hope you will join me in this effort and I invite all members to co-sponsor this important legislation.
