From WIC participant to a mentor helping other WIC participants

— Beth Keeney

My name is Beth and I am currently the Breastfeeding Peer Outreach Coordinator for the WIC office in Lebanon. I am married and have a 12 year old son, Noah. My husband, Brian, Noah and I live in Cornwall.

Years ago, during the late 1970’s, I was a client at Lebanon Family Health Services. During that time I received women’s health screenings and birth control. In 1979, I married my first husband and had 2 children—Nathan, born in 1982 and Natalie, born in 1983. The marriage ended in 1986 and I became a single mom with a 3-year-old and a 4-year-old. That’s when I was referred to the WIC program by my doctor. My children were a part of the WIC family until they turned 5 years old.

Today I have 8 grandchildren, all of whom have been part of the WIC program. So you can see that Lebanon Family Health Services and the WIC office have been a part of my life for many years. Generations, in fact.

Being a part of the staff today seems like I’ve come full circle here at WIC. I’m grateful for the opportunity to help others who are now a part of the WIC family. It is truly a humbling and rewarding experience. Thank you, Lebanon Family Health Services and WIC.
