Proceedings: WIC Participant Retention Strategies: Pre-Conference Workshop
By The National WIC Association
This resource includes presentations from the Pre-Conference Workshop on WIC Participant Retention Strategies. The workshop is summarized below:
WIC caseload decline has been a concerning phenomenon for a number of years. For even longer, retaining WIC participants for more of their eligible period has been a goal. WIC is innovative and strategies to encourage participants to remain with WIC longer or return to WIC have been implemented at the clinic, local and state agency level. This one-day workshop will focus on sharing lessons from the field and helping attendees work through the barriers and facilitators to implementing different WIC retention strategies in their specific WIC setting. Over the course of the day, participants will develop their own participant retention work plan. This will be a dynamic day of learning, sharing and strategizing.
