Striking the Balance: Unlocking Remote WIC Services After COVID-19
By National WIC Association
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) rapidly innovated to provide remote services via video conferencing, telephone, and online platforms. These efforts, undertaken to promote social distancing, had a complementary effect of reducing longstanding barriers to access and enhancing retention of child participants.
As WIC prepares for the next generation of expectant parents, a more flexible service delivery model should incorporate lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic to unlock remote services.
