Seton Health Foundation/ St. Peter’s Health Partners is one of 6 recipients to be awarded a grant from the NYS Department of Health to work on a coordinated community network to build/expand community-based breastfeeding partnerships and advance broad-based policy, system, and environmental changes on breastfeeding protection, promotion, support and care management within community settings and businesses, and with child care and health care providers.

CBFC serves the following communities in NYS Capital Region: Albany City, Cohoes City, Colonie Town, Watervliet Town, Schaghticoke Town, Troy City, Brunswick Town, Rotterdam Town and Schenectady City.  This program offers free resources and assistance to health care providers, child care centers, and worksites on implementing best practices toward creating a more breastfeeding friendly environment.
