  1. New Logo/Slogan for Missouri WIC: The State WIC Office needs your help. We are looking for a new logo/slogan to promote the Missouri WIC program. Why are we asking now? As most of you know, we are working to develop e-Learning and implement EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) so this would be a good time to do it. So please help us update our image! In future WIC Updates, we will have additional information and instructions on how to submit your ideas, but we’d like you to start thinking about it now. We’d like to have as many ideas as possible. Ideas, images, and suggestions are welcome from any source: local WIC agencies, participants, WIC retailers, or others. Get thinking and be creative!
    If you have questions, please contact Susan Guerrant at susan.guerrant@health.mo.gov or 573-526-1368.

  2. 2012 WIC Conference: “The Magic of WIC” will be held October 22-24, 2012 at the Capital Plaza Hotel in Jefferson City. The conference offers opportunities to network with WIC colleagues, keep up-to-date on nutrition and breastfeeding trends, visit with participating WIC exhibitors, and a chance to meet and discuss current WIC topics with State staff. See attached for a draft of the At-A- Glance. Please start planning now to attend this great conference! If you have any questions, please contact Brenda Brewer at Brenda.Brewer@tmcmed.org.
