The National Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Association (NWA) held its biannual WIC technology conference Sept. 17-20, 2013, at the Sheraton Hotel in Dallas, Texas. New this year, the conference incorporated program integrity into its traditionally technology-centric agenda. With a theme of “Empowering Minds for a Better Future,” sessions focused on implementing electronic benefits transfer (EBT) systems, enhancing management information systems (MIS), the value of data mining, benefits of WIC mobile applications, and the increasing role of technology in vendor management and program integrity. Conference sessions fell into one of three main tracks: technology, EBT, or program integrity. The agenda also included a fourth track for gold-sponsor vendor sessions or other miscellaneous sessions.
