There are food and health resource available to Tennessee moms, babies and young children yet many don’t know about it or don’t participate. The WIC program in Tennessee saw a slight increase in participation during the pandemic, yet still only reaches 43% of eligible women and children. WIC has been proven to bolster health outcomes, including reducing maternal mortality rates and reducing obesity rates. This webinar will share important program information, discuss the benefits it provides, address barriers to access, and lift up strategies we can all use to increase the number of caregivers and children participating. Hear from expert speakers and learn how you can become involved.
