PAH’s 1st Breast Feeding Champion

Cristie-GiordanoCongratulations to Cristie Giordano, a clinical nurse 2 RN on 4 & 5 Preston, who is the recipient of PAH’s first Breast Feeding Champion of the Month Award. This monthly recognition award was initiated by the 4/5 Preston Unit Council to recognize excellence in breast feeding support for our patients. Cristie was nominated by her peers for her clinical excellence and support of the “Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding” as established by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative. PAH officially kicked off its baby-friendly journey in the fall of 2012 to help significantly improve breastfeeding rates in the Philadelphia region.
