Improving the health of infants on Medicaid by collocating Special Supplemental Nutrition clinics with managed care provider sites

Kendal AP, et al. Improving the health of infants on Medicaid by collocating Special Supplemental Nutrition clinics with managed care provider sites. Am J Public Health. Mar 2002;92(3):399-403.

The study objective was to determine whether collocation of WIC clinics at managed care provider sites improved health care for infants enrolled in Medicaid and WIC. The findings revealed that compared with other infants, those who visited collocated WIC sites were either closer to their age-appropriate weight or had higher immunization rates when recertified by WIC staff after their first birthday.
