[Parentsgroup-list] Fwd: incentives for pumping room?

Hello, all --

About a month ago, I wrote to the list asking about a program to  
encourage Harvard schools to install or improve lactation rooms by  
offering free hospital-grade pumps. I just received this response from  
Nela Suka, who let me know that her office is in the process of buying  
pumps for HLS, the MCB/OEB area, and the Center for Astrophysics. They  
are working on two additional locations, and if there is demonstrated  
need, they may be able to provide additional pumps to other parts of  
campus. If you have ideas, please let Nela know!

> Dear Jane,

> lactation.shtml if

> We will continue to post the locations of rooms on these two pages as
> more rooms become available - we *are* in the process of setting up a
> room (with a pump) in the MCB/OEB area, as well.
> We are also looking for more partners across the university who are
> willing to offer a dedicated space to a pumping/lactation room in
> underserved areas. In exchange, we would provide the partner with a
> hospital-grade pump (which retail for about $800-$900).
> ***Currently, in addition to the pumps we're putting into place at the
> Center for Astrophysics (at Linnean & Garden Streets), HLS, and in the
> MCB/OEB area, we are working on two additional locations. If there  
> is a
> demonstrated need, we may be able to cover other areas, as well.
> If you feel so inclined, please feel free to post this to the parents'
> list.
> Best wishes, and thanks for your email,
