SUBJECT 2: Survey-2014 WIC Conference
SUBJECT 3: NWA Leadership Conference Scholarship


  1. MOWINS e-Learning Trainings: Now that we have a system in place for taking the MOWINS e-Learning trainings, we want to remind everyone that there are four steps to completing the process: (1) Watching all modules within each session; (2) Completing an Evaluation; (3) filling out the Confirmation of Completion; and (4) printing off a Certificate of Completion.
    If at any time you are unable to finish all four (4) steps, please have your supervisor contact the WIC Help Desk at WICHelpDesk@health.mo.gov or 800-554-2544 for further direction.

  2. Survey- 2014 WIC Conference: The 2014 WIC Conference will be held October 19-21, in Columbia, MO. More information on the conference will be included in future WIC Updates. The conference planning committee (comprised of local and state staff) is working now to begin putting together the agenda. We need your help!

    Please take a few minutes and complete the attached survey. This will enable us to provide conference sessions that LWP staff would like to attend. Since there will be three tracks (nutrition, admin/general and breastfeeding) we have three separate surveys- one for each of the tracks. Please choose the survey below that most closely fits your WIC role and complete only one survey.
    Complete survey by 5:00 PM on December 31, 2013.

    If you have questions, please contact Mark Davis at Mark.Davis@health.mo.gov or 573-526-5323 or 800-392-8209.

  3. NWA Leadership Conference Scholarship: The Missouri WIC Office is offering two scholarships for LWP staff to attend the NWA Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. on March 2-4.
