The Importance of breast feeding
EL PASO - The Department of Public Health announces the relocation of the new center which will serve the growing need for WIC in the community.
WIC currently has approximately 16,000 potential participants in the El Paso community.
The breastfeeding celebration took place today and it was an opportunity to honor WIC moms with certificates because they have continued to exclusively breastfeed their infants.
WIC moms also shared their personal experiences with soon-to-be mothers.
The new location has over 4,000 square feet available to provide food demonstration classes, and waiting areas with toys that will allow children to play with others and increase their physical activity.
The center is located at 8010 North Loop Drive.
