WIC 50th Anniversary!

April: Diversity of Families and Equity

This year, we recognize an incredible milestone in the evolution of maternal and child health care — the 50th anniversary of the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program. Since the opening of the first clinic in 1974, WIC has been an unwavering beacon of support, committed to improving public health outcomes for women, infants, and children.

In April, WIC acknowledges the importance of equitable approaches and an ongoing commitment to supporting diverse families. WIC plays a vital role in addressing racial inequities in pregnancy-related health outcomes, food insecurities, and breastfeeding challenges, providing critical support and fostering security for those in need.
