The conference will provide a forum to discuss Federal initiatives affecting the health and nutritional well-being of WIC mothers and young children. Also addressed at the conference will be WIC’s role as a preventative public health nutrition program, as well as effective management of WIC services. One goal for participants during the conference is to educate Washington policy makers on the role WIC plays, bringing the message from a local perspective, to policy makers.
