Physician Information

Working together for better health.

Support from physicians is vital to the mission of WIC to safeguard the health and wellbeing of South Dakota women, infants and children. It is important that WIC staff and physicians work together to achieve this goal. See below for resources to help answer questions about the WIC program and other information.

Supporting breastfeeding.

Babies who are not breastfeed are missing out on the better nutrients and healthier immune system that breastfeeding provides. Healthcare providers are a mother’s most reliable source when it comes to breastfeeding information.

Providing formula when needed.

When mothers are unable or choose not to breastfeed, WIC is here to support their formula
feeding needs. Learn more about the formula options WIC participants have and how
