It’s World Breastfeeding Week! To celebrate, we’re taking this opportunity to highlight the benefits of breastfeeding and empower breastfeeding moms everywhere. Breastfeeding is a way to give nourishment to babies, but it offers so much more than sustenance.
Pinnacle Prevention is dedicated to growing healthy families and communities, and we know that starts in our own homes. Behind our incredible team of women is a team of supportive and brilliant men — our Pinnacle Prevention dads!
At Pinnacle Prevention, our mission is to grow healthy families and communities. Accomplishing that starts right in our own office, where we are dedicated to uplifting our working moms and their families each and every day. To celebrate Mother’s Day, we asked everyone to share their favorite moments with their Pinnacle Prevention Littles:
November marks the beginning of the season of giving. No one is too young to learn the importance of helping others. This holiday season, take your family out to assist those in need, all the while imparting habits and compassion to last a lifetime. There are family-friendly activities and organizations across Arizona for you and your loved ones to get involved with, so here are a few ideas to get you started!
Celebrate National Take a Hike Day
National Take a Hike Day is observed annually on November 17. Phoenix is home to more than 41,000 acres of desert parks and mountain preserves and more than 200 miles of trails.
Hiking has tons of benefits and is a great way to start to your holiday season. Whether you bring a buddy or take a solo adventure, get out there and enjoy the fresh air, cooler weather, scenery, and exercise. Be sure to dress appropriately, and bring water, sunscreen, and snacks!
The holiday season is right around the corner! Few things warm our hearts more than families gathering for shared meals and creating meaningful memories over the next two months.
Sometimes the stress of the holidays can feel overwhelming, but there are plenty of ways you and your family can remain mindful of healthy habits during this holiday season.
Leaves are changing, but healthy habits don’t have to! With fall weather comes many exciting opportunities for families to have fun together and stay active.

This month, we’re exploring some of the ways schools can act as hubs of connection and promote wellness for children, families, and entire communities. When schools and communities unite, they create opportunities for everyone to thrive.
One incredible example of this work in our state is the Isaac Family Resource Center – a collaboration between the Isaac School District, community members and various organizations with a shared vision of wellness and success for their neighborhood.
We traditionally view health as the result of individual choices. While this can be true, there are other factors, including the resources and norms of our community that influence our choices without us always being aware. So how can we be sure the factors around us that impact our health are doing so for the better?
As a leader in your community, you have the power to create healthy environments and policies where you live, work, and play. Together, we can create vibrant communities that support healthy choices and lifestyles.
Pinnacle Prevention is dedicated to growing healthy families and communities, with a mission to inspire and advance a healthy food system and opportunities for active living.
