Over the past few years, the role of technology in WIC has been a growing area of program focus. Innovations in technology including smartphone applications, online educational and administrative platforms, and electronic benefits have enabled many WIC agencies to consider how new technology can improve the WIC participant experience, increase program participation, and support more efficient program management.
To facilitate the sharing of best practices, lessons learned, innovations and research, the National WIC Association is offering a virtual conference December 4-6, 2018 on Using Technology to Improve the WIC Participant Experience. This virtual conference will comprise of eight pre-recorded presentations and four live, one-hour presentations in the form of webinars over the course of three days. Virtual Conference attendees will be able to access the sessions from the comfort of their own computer between December 4-6, 2018. The conference will feature voices from WIC agencies themselves as well as researchers, and other partners who have insights to share with regard to the use of technology in WIC.
