Wichita Co. WIC office to close for a week in July

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - The WIC office in Wichita Falls is going to be closed for six days in July for training on a new automated system.

From Friday, July 6 to Friday, July 13 the WIC office will be moving participant information from the old computer system to a new automated system and training its employees on how to use it.

The new system is paperless and will replace a number of paper forms currently used in the WIC office.

Beginning July 16, clients will experience less paperwork, automatic appointment reminders and enhanced growth charts and shopping lists, according to the Wichita Falls - Wichita County Public Health District.

Due to the closure, no WIC benefits will be issued from the afternoon of July 6 until reopening on July 16.

To receive current benefits, participants are strongly encouraged to attend their scheduled appointments.

Those who have missed picking up benefits should come to the WIC office before July 6.
