Poster Session Information

Poster Session Application pdf file

NOTE:  Due to the nature of the conference facilities this year, instead of having posters on display, all poster information will be printed on 8 ½ by 11 paper and included with program materials.  State office staff are available to help with layout and design and other technical assistance as needed.

Purpose:  Local agency staff are invited to share your agency’s success stories at the Colorado WIC 2014 State Meeting.  Local agencies are continually developing innovative educational materials, training tools, efficiency measures, partnerships with local community programs, and basically, original ways to conduct day-to-day WIC business.   Sharing your ideas benefits other agencies as they gather ideas and information to help them provide quality services to participants, plan for upcoming changes and run more effective programs.

The Poster Session provides an opportunity to share your agency activities in a visual display. Ideas of topics to share include:

  • Classes such as Cooking demos, Breastfeeding, Nutrition Ed, Lifestyle, Parenting, etc. (Please bring copies of handouts and class outlines)
  • Nutrition education materials
  • Breastfeeding support and promotion activities
  • WIC sponsored funding for special breastfeeding projects
  • Outreach projects
  • Community nutrition promotion projects
  • Community projects with other organizations such as EFNEP, Head Start, Prenatal Plus, Operation Frontline, etc.
  • Culturally diverse materials or classes
  • Caseload and/or clinic management
  • Ways your agency has dealt with unusual events (fires, floods, lengthy closures due to snow storms, road closures, etc.)
  • Staff training, development, and motivation
  • Local agency materials (bulletin board ideas, agency newsletters, handouts, forms, etc.)

Poster content
An effective poster should: 

  • Catch the viewer’s attention
  • Quickly acquaint the viewer with the basics of your subject, and
  • Tempt the viewer to learn more
  • Focus on a single message
  • Let graphs and images tell the story (use text sparingly)
  • Keep the sequence well-ordered and obvious

Presentation style tips:

  • Keep the information simple, but make your point
  • Strike a balance between giving either too much or too little information
  • Highlight the major points in a form that the viewer can absorb in a few minutes
  • DO NOT USE ALL CAPITAL LETTERS FOR TEXT. IT IS HARDER TO READ THAN
  • UPPER AND LOWER CASE
  • Emphasize important information using different font types and sizes, however too many colors or fonts can be distracting.  An effective poster is interesting without being too ostentatious.

Pediatric Nutrition Surveillance System (PedNSS) Data

Each month WIC submits participant data to the Pediatric Nutrition Surveillance (PedNSS) data set and after the end of the year CDC complies the data into various reports. Reports from each year are available by clicking on the links below. These data reports are organized by clinic, county, local agency and state. Some of the indicators found in the reports include racial and ethnic distribution, age distribution, growth and anemia indicators, breastfeeding, TV viewing, and smoking in household.

If you use these numbers or tables for publications be sure to document and reference CDC Pediatric Nutrition Surveillance.
