Parkwest was honored to be recognized today at Knoxville’s World Breastfeeding Week Celebration by receiving the Marcie Singleton Award. A tireless advocate for mothers’ rights to breastfeed, Singleton was the Nutrition Director and Breastfeeding Coordinator for the Knox County Health Department’s Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. Each year, the award is given to a business or individual who goes above and beyond to promote and/or be supportive of breastfeeding.
