Together We Can - Influence Change

As WIC Counselors, we strive to provide the best service and support to AZ families. Part of that role means constantly striving to improve our skills and techniques. Below you will find various resources, materials and tips that you can use to improve your skills or train staff.

Getting to the Heart of the Matter Assessment

In Arizona, we use a conversational approach to nutrition assessment. We do this using the ABCDE guide and a little help from the Getting to the Heart of the Matter (GTHM) Tools adapted from Massachusetts. Whether you're just getting started or wanting to strengthen your skills, find tips, resources and training information for the nutrition assessment in AZ WIC.

Nutrition Education and PCS Skills

Offering tips, suggestions based on the needs and interests of our clients and our assessment in an effective way is an art and takes some practice! Below you will find resources, tips and materials you can use to guide you as you develop or master your skills.

Together We Can Email Blasts
