ANDOVER, Mass. and EATONTOWN, N.J., Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Holly Mielcarz, RN, IBCLC* and a certified childbirth educator, Andover, Mass., has been hired by Acelleron Medical Products, a home medical equipment provider, as its director of education. In this role, Mielcarz will create and maintain relationships with OBGYN centers and hospitals throughout New England. She will also advise nursing advocacy and support groups, educating them about the Affordable Care Act, the availability of breastfeeding support, and breast pumps for new and expectant mothers through Acelleron, a Preferred Home Health Care company, Eatontown, N.J.
Mielcarz, who has a passion for educating breastfeeding women in the workplace, will be partnering with corporations to offer this valuable information to employees.
