In order to assist local WIC staff in complying with the State Health Department’s Qualified Nutritionist policy, the WIC Association for New York State is interested in helping member agencies recruit and retain “qualified nutritionists” by offering a payment toward their outstanding college student loans.  This is a one-time payment of $2,000 to benefit staff nutritionists who meet the conditions listed in the accompanying application.
