A key goal of THIS-WIC is to generate robust evidence of effective strategies for implementing telehealth solutions in WIC. Learnings from THIS-WIC research will help improve WIC services for participating SAs and help them to ensure high-quality programming and program access. These applied research findings will also inform other WIC SAs and local agencies more broadly on ways to meet program needs of the evolving WIC participant population
THIS-WIC will lead the evaluation of the projects in collaboration with the funded WIC SAs. Applicants do not need to be research experts or have prior experience in evaluation but will be expected to work with the THIS-WIC team to finalize the evaluation design for funded projects and to provide data necessary to evaluate the impact, feasibility, and acceptability of the intervention.
