Medolac Laboratories Announces Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Commitment to Action at 2014 CGI Annual Meeting
Goal is to Increase Breastfeeding and Economic Empowerment in Urban Areas
LAKE OSWEGO, Ore., Sept. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Medolac Laboratories (www.medolac.com), an Oregon-based human milk nutritionals start-up, announced today its CGI Commitment to Action at the 2014 CGI Annual Meeting. This commitment is aligned with the U.S. Surgeon General's Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding, released in 2011, which expressed grave concerns regarding critically low breastfeeding rates among African American mothers, particularly in urban centers, with the report indicating that, "breastfeeding rates for black infants are about 50 percent lower than those for white infants at birth, age six months and age 12 months..." Low breastfeeding rates for African American urban women have been a concern of health policy makers for many years considering breastfeeding's positive impact on the health and well-being for both mother and child. The company seeks to increase breastfeeding rates among urban African American Women by forming a local partnership campaign to support the growth of the Mothers Milk Cooperative's donor base, promoting healthy behavior and prolonged breastfeeding within their communities.
