In partnership with Maimonides Medical Center, healthfirst and By My Side/healthy start Brooklyn, Prospect Park Zoo is hosting a breastfeeding awareness event during National Breastfeeding Awareness week. The event will showcase health care services available in our community to give families the best possible start. Guest speakers will be Councilmember Laurie Cumbo and Councilmember Robert Cornegy Jr. Free health talks will be provided by Maimonides experts and more than 20 health resource vendors will be available for information.
Prospect Park Zoo is proud to support this event. We believe that healthy bodies and healthy minds play an important role in setting the stage for a connection to the natural world, compassion and empathy for wildlife and promoting conservation efforts.
