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.

My son and his family were also clients of the WIC Program which really helped them financially with their formula,
groceries and the education they received regarding the healthy ways to make meals.
