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:

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.
