Lovelace Health System Contributes to Local Food Pantry

Since 1989, Rio Grande Food Project (RGFP) has worked to prevent and end hunger for children, adults, and seniors throughout Albuquerque. Established in 1989 by several members of the Rio Grande Presbyterian Church, the efforts of RGFP has significantly grown ever since. The Rio Grande Food Project separated from the church in 2004 and has transformed into the largest food pantry on Albuquerque’s Westside, transporting about 90,000 lbs of food and serving close to 4,000 people every month. Lovelace Health System is fortunate to support this growing food pantry year after year.

What Does the Baby-Friendly Designation Mean?

The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) is a global program that was launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in 1991 to promote, support, and encourage breastfeeding. BFHI recognizes hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding and mother/baby bonding. Lovelace Women’s Hospital is proud to be among these hospitals recognized as Baby-Friendly.

Addictions vs. Bad Habits

 

Many of us engage in habits and routines that become second nature to us. Actions like waking up at a certain time or biting our nails are habits we either create or fall into.

Positive habits can become tools for survival, but some habitual behaviors can develop into harmful addictions.
