National WIC Association and Milwaukee Health Services, Inc. (MHSI) recently presented Congresswoman Gwen Moore with the 2012 Leadership Award at the MLK- Heritage Health Center location at 2555 N. MLK Drive. Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is a national, mission-driven preventive public health nutrition program serving nearly 9 million mothers and young children, benefiting local communities and the nation. “The primary objective of this award is, to honor one of our leaders who has been and continues to be a champion for WIC during these uncertain times to help keep the program funded, so that it can continue to effectively improve the nutrition and overall health of pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and their young children in communities like ours across the nation,” according to Angie Wilks-Tate, WIC Project Director at MHSI.
MHSI is a Federally Qualified Health Center partnering with WIC to prevent children’s health problems and improving their health, growth and development. The mission of MHSI is to provide accessible, quality primary and related health care services to Milwaukee residents, with the continuing emphasis on medically-underserved families and individuals.
