Two Recognition Awards for WSU South Team

WSU South in Derby has been recognized for its Lactation Room facility. The Kansas Business Case for Breastfeeding awarded WSU South the Gold Recognition Award for its Lactation Room facility that has received great reviews by its users. The Lactation Room at WSU South was funded by a grant in 2015 to Danielle Gabor, the Administrative Officer at WSU South. Danielle was able to acquire a rocking chair, a dedicated and secure refrigerator, a hospital-grade pump, and free pump kits for users. The Recognition Award was in response to the comfortable and secure environment and the support service WSU South provides to its student and staff users. See the following link for more info:
