Ossining Open Door
What do you find most exciting about working on the WIC team at Open Door?
I love the interactions with my co-workers and how I learn each day from them. I learn so many things from them – about how to better serve our families, about how to do my job more efficiently, etc. But equally as important, I learn about their culture, their experiences, and that helps me to grow as a person – which in turn helps me working with our WIC families.
Can you share something about the WIC program that people in the community might not know?
WIC is more than a food program. WIC is a dedicated team of nutrition professionals who will help you and your family better understand how the foods you eat affect your overall health and the health and development of your baby – in utero and in life.
If you could only give one piece of advice about nutrition to the general community, what would it be?
Know what you are eating, and eat what you enjoy.
