As a result of your responses to our 2015 training survey, CWA is offering Regional Training Days this summer focused on integrating three areas of best practices applicable not only for WIC staff, but also for professionals working in MCAH, health care and social services for young families:

Best Practices for Including Men and Dads
The Experience of African Americans within California WIC
Developing Meaningful Stories for Outreach and Participation

If you attended a CWA summer regional training day in the past, you know the high-quality professional education you can expect! Each full day of training will give attendees the chance to develop best practices to implement in their organization for including Men and Dads and improving the service experiences of African American families, as well as short stories that help promote public health services and collaboration.
