About the Event:NINAWC invites you to join us in Durant, Oklahoma at the upcoming 2017 bi-annual conference. The theme for this year is “Blending Tradition with Nutrition for the Next Generation”. Who is NINAWC? NINAWC is a coalition representing over 45 Native American and Indian communities and their non-profit WIC organizations. These organizations provide services for women, children and infants. WIC associations are the front line of nutrition education and health care services for the nation’s most vulnerable families.
Why Attend? The three-day conference offers attendees opportunities to network with WIC colleagues, keep up to date on nutrition and breastfeeding trends, visit with participating WIC exhibitors, and meet and discuss current WIC topics. The conference will also offer three specialized workshops for attendees to meet with USDA officials and learn more about relevant changes and updates. NINAWC conference attendees will have the opportunity to attend five general sessions and may select seven workshops to attend from the list of 24 concurrent educational presentations. Keynotes and workshop presentations will be given by national, collegiate and tribal experts! A very special reception is planned for Wednesday evening. We will have ceremonial dancing and drums performed by Choctaw tribal members. All attendees are invited to join us for this event. Appetizers will be provided and a cash bar will be available. We hope that you will join us in the Choctaw Nation for the 2017 NINAWC Conference. Register as soon as possible! Registration will close on March 10th.
