Mother's Milk Bank holds ribbon-cutting event, open house

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The Mother's Milk Bank of Iowa will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony and host an open house from 4 to 6 p.m. this Friday. The event will be held at its new Liberty Square location at 119 2nd St., Suite 400, in Coralville.

According to the milk bank, infants who are on human milk have lower number of hospital admissions, fewer ear infections, rashes, and allergies, as well as less diarrhea.

All the donated milk collected and stored by Mother's Milk Bank is pasteurized. After pasteurization, it is tested for bacteria. Most immunologic and nutritional components of human milk remain intact after pasteurization.

For more information about the event or Mother's Milk Bank, contact Jean Drulis at jean-drulis@uiowa.edu or 319-356-2652.
