A new kind of milk truck is coming to Pittsburgh, PA. to help rescue breastfeeding women and to enable babies to eat anywhere at anytime.

In the state of Pennsylvania, as well as the majority of states within the US, there are breastfeeding laws that specifically allow mothers to breastfeed their babies in any public or private location, yet many women are still being discouraged and often are given a hard time.

According to Jill Miller, artist and faculty member in the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA., despite the breastfeeding laws, women who are breastfeeding in public are being harassed and asked to leave or to go to the bathroom to feed their baby. Ms. Miller said, "My team and I have a simple belief that hungry babies should be able to eat anywhere at anytime." This is why she created The Milk Truck.

The Milk Truck will be part of the 2011 Pittsburgh Biennial at the Andy Warhol Museum from September 26 - December 10. During this time frame, the truck will be a (Read Full Article)

Asbury Park's Doctor Teams Up with Artemis!

An apple a day might ring true and keep the doctor away for many people who are focusing on living a healthy life, but for many residents living in Asbury Park, NJ., their doctor is someone they want to see and who they trust.

Last year I began a business partnership with Dr. Angelo Chinnici, an internal medicine doctor and long time resident of Asbury Park. We met by chance through the Internet as he came across my website. After reviewing my information and background, he began to refer patients to me that he believed could benefit from my health counseling services and support.

Eager to meet each other in person, a trip to Asbury Park was planned during my recent trip to New York City. Not only did we meet but we also organized and held a health event, "Wellness Through Whole Food Nutrition" at his office while I was there.

Dr. Chinnici and I spent the day touring his beautiful office (which is also his home), meeting his staff and shopping for the event that night. He took me to a fabulous health food store in the area, Dean's Natural Food Market, where we had fun shopping together and ate some delicious raw collard wraps and drank green vegetable juice!

Everywhere we went, (Please read full article)
