First 5 San Joaquin Celebrates National Breastfeeding Month!   
The benefits of breastfeeding are well documented. They include bonding for babies and mothers, improved short- and long-term health outcomes, and economic benefits. Breastfeeding is also associated with reduced risks of diabetes, ovarian cancer, and certain types of breast cancer in mothers. Since 2008, First 5 San Joaquin has invested approximately $830,000 in the Breastfeeding Initiative.  For more information on these efforts, click here.  
First 5 San Joaquin has set aside funds to sponsor events and activities that assist in achieving the priorities established in the Strategic Plan and help to expand the reach of the Talk, Read, Sing, Draw, Play campaign. View the Application for more info.
