WIC offices to be closed July 9-13

Post Date:07/02/2018

Offices of San Angelo’s Women, Infants and Children, or WIC, program will be closed July 9-13 as the staff trains on a new software program.

The closures will include the program’s main office downtown and its three satellite locations. WIC clients are encouraged to schedule appointments prior to July 9. WIC plans a light schedule of appointments the week of July 16 as staff gains familiarity with the new software.

The software will allow WIC to convert to a paperless system. The advantages for clients will include their receiving text and email appointment reminders, paper prescriptions will be eliminated for non-contract baby formulas, and client information from other clinics will be accessible to WIC’s staff.

WIC is a City-administered nutrition program that helps pregnant women, new mothers, infants and young children eat well, learn about nutrition and stay healthy. WIC’s main offices in the Community Development Building, 52 W. College Ave., are open 7 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.-6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, and by appointment from 8 a.m.-noon the first Saturday each month.
