Tufts University to Fund and Support Seven WIC Program Telehealth Innovations

The USDA/Tufts Telehealth Intervention Strategies for WIC (THIS-WIC) is excited to announce that seven WIC State Agencies will receive awards up to $1,000,000 each. Selected through a competitive review process, these 24- to 30-month projects will use innovative telehealth solutions to deliver nutrition education and breastfeeding support to WIC participants to overcome barriers to access, particularly those encountered in rural settings. The THIS-WIC team will oversee the evaluation and provide technical support to funded WIC State Agencies.
