Madrie honored by Fort Rucker
The United States Army Garrison at Fort Rucker presented a Certificate of Appreciation to SAMC's lactation specialist Keitha Madrie, RN, for her "thoughtful and selfless service in support of the [Army's] breastfeeding class." Madrie teaches about the importance of breastfeeding to expectant military moms, while also explaining the range of maternal and postpartum services offered at SAMC. "I especially enjoy working with the military families at Fort Rucker. These mothers often need extra support, especially when the father might be attending flight school and facing the demands of military training," Madrie said.
