JOB POSTING: Part-Time WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor - City of St. Joseph Health Department

 

SUBJECT 1: Terminology Changes. The State WIC office is making the transition from using the terms Local WIC Provider (LWP) to Local Agency (LA), State WIC Office to State Agency (SA), and Vendor to Retailer. These changes are a result of feedback from focus groups as being terms which better describe the organizations in the WIC program. Please note that you may see both terms used until all materials have been converted. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Roberts at Jennifer.L.Roberts@health.mo.gov or 573-526-2821

SUBJECT 2: CEU Corner.
