The state’s second human-milk depot is now open at Florida Hospital in Orlando, the Orlando Sentinel reports. There are 11 such depots across the country where nursing mothers can also donate breast milk. Florida’s only other location is in Miami. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
