INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is honoring a breastfeeding advocate as part of state and worldwide events celebrating the practice.
The Indiana State Department of Health says Pence has recognized Terry Jo Curtis, the founder of the Indianapolis-based Indiana Black Breastfeeding Coalition. Curtis died on Mother's Day this year.
In a recent letter to Curtis' family and friends, Pence said Curtis "was a true role model for Indiana citizens, one who broke barriers and lived by the belief that understanding and compassion are the means to impact change."
Pence has proclaimed Aug. 1-7 as Breastfeeding Week in Indiana in conjunction with World Breastfeeding Week.
