Wood County WIC at a Glance Training
By Wood County Health Department
Wood County created this WIC 101 Training to highlight their local work on WIC referrals. This presentation included basic information about WIC including staff, eligibility, the four pillars of WIC, and services including breastfeeding support and nutrition education.
Located in rural Central Wisconsin, Wood County has a high population of residents with limited access to healthy foods, opportunities for physical activity and limited referrals for appropriate services. The Wood County Health Department, through the collaboration with the Community Partnerships for Healthy Mothers and Children project, has implemented policy, systems, and environmental change by cultivating community partnerships in various settings to increase access to healthy foods, physical activity, and breastfeeding services, as well as develop a framework for sustainability for years to come. The policy, systems and environmental changes made through this grant work will greatly improve the health, as well as health equity, in Wood County.
