This past October, at the New Jersey WIC Training Program, local WIC Coordinators and their staff members were given Certificates of Appreciation in commemoration of WIC’s 40th anniversary and signed by the New Jersey Commissioner of Health, Mary O’Dowd. On Tuesday, December 23rd, Brunilda Price, Coordinator of Community Health Services, which includes the WIC program, presented each staff member with their certificate, thanking them for their continued hard work and dedication to the program.

Daniel Regenye, Ocean County Health Department (OCHD) Public Health Coordinator, said that the OCHD WIC program is the 3rd largest in the State of New Jersey. He said, “We offer WIC services at the Lakewood, Toms River and Stafford sites and also have WIC representatives available at several of our pre-natal clinics in Ocean County and at other sites within the county to make our services more geographically accessible to residents. The WIC nutritionists that work with our pre-natal clinics in the county meet one-on-one with pregnant women to help assure a healthier pregnancy for both mother and baby.”
