The Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD)’s purpose is to “protect, promote, and preserve the health and well-being of all Allegheny County residents”. This is done by providing information and supportive services to our communities. The WIC program, which functions under ACHD has a mission to safeguard the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk. The program provides nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating, and referrals to health care.
The purpose of hosting a NHC member at the ACHD WIC Program is to improve the quality of our program for all current and potential participants. The ACHD WIC Program strives to provide supplemental food, education and referrals to a high risk population. By recognizing and eliminating barriers participants face including transportation, long appointment times and difficulty shopping the WIC Program is able to better serve participants and reach a larger portion of our target population.
