Time Studies Reminder

The end of January is quickly approaching and Time Studies are due to Bernadette no later than February 5th.  A big thank you goes out to staff who have already sent their studies to the State Office.


State WIC Laptop Users

If you have a State WIC Laptop, please ensure that you log into it on the network monthly.

A State WIC Laptop must be logged on to the network at least once a month so it doesn’t get locked out. Once it is locked out, it becomes unusable until you send it back to the State and the IT personnel unlock it.

Reminder calls will no longer be made. Call the WIC Helpdesk if you have questions.


M-SPIRIT Pop Quiz Winner is Judy Snyder!

Congratulations to Judy Snyder of the Riverstone WIC Office. Judy knew that if you reassign a scanned document from one person to the other, it will no longer be filed in the original person’s folder. She also knew that if that document had originally been scanned into multiple household members’ folders, it would be removed from those folders as well.

Bottles with Impact

Looking to make an impact on participants in your clinic? Bottles with Impact send a clear message that asks, "Would you feed your baby this?" The glass bottles are filled with cigarettes and beer caps. If you are seeing issues like these in your clinic a strong visual aid could help.

Check out the Web site for more details.
