Welcome to your WIC staff home page, an index of resources available online for clinic staff.
On August 17th we're launching our new Virtual Breastfeeding Support Group. Meetings will take place every 3rd Tuesday, 11 am - 12 pm via Zoom. Please share information about the new Breastfeeding Support Group with WIC participants.
