Thursday, October 19 - 9:30 - 11:00 a.m.

Woolwich Community Health Centre will celebrate Community Health and Wellbeing Week with its official designation as a Baby-Friendly organization. This designation is the culmination of more than five years of focused effort by the health centre’s inter-professional staff team to implement World Health Organization (WHO) standards for providing rural families with the very best infant feeding, health teaching and support. The Baby-Friendly Initiative (BFI) is a worldwide program of the WHO and UNICEF. Its aim is to ensure all families receive skilled support and accurate information to safely feed their infants and growing children. To achieve this designation, many volunteers, and all of the health centre’s staff from its three sites in St. Jacobs, Linwood, and Wellesley, were engaged in education and training over the years and months leading up to a three-day site review by external assessors.
