What does WIC do with client information?
All data collected is anonymous (not tied to a particular person). Data is used by the Center for Disease Control to track health indicators in communities throughout the United States. The data also provides justification to Congress to continue funding the program (i.e. improved birth outcomes, lowered obesity rates from eating healthier foods and increasing physical activity, etc).
