We may need more volunteers in the future, so please email Kristen Lynch @ Kristen.Lynch@sphp.com if you are still interested in being a model or interested in joining one of our coalitions in Albany Schenectady and Troy. We are always looking for new members!! Working together as a community makes the most difference. Thank you all again!!!! Here at Community Health Programs, we are seeking nursing mothers who are willing to participate in a photoshoot featuring moms nursing their children. The photos will be used to create "standees," which are life-sized cardboard cut-outs, that will be placed throughout the community to promote breastfeeding!
