School of Medicine Faculty, Staff, and Students,
The School of Medicine is committed to creating and supporting a family-friendly environment for its employees and students who have children, including nursing mothers who want to continue lactating after they return from maternity leave. For this reason, we are implementing a new Policy Statement on Lactation in the Workplace for the UNC School of Medicine. A copy of that policy statement is available here for your reference. In addition, I am pleased to inform you that a new lactation room has been made available in Room 310 MacNider Hall.
We hope that these efforts will help to better support our faculty, staff, and students.
