Chicago Mayor’s Office: Mobile Women Infants Children vans
Kristy is working with the City of Chicago as a Mayoral Fellow on a variety of municipal projects. One of these projects is a proposal for the City of Chicago to introduce mobile WIC (Women Infants Children) vans that travel throughout the city to better provide mothers and their young families access to health related services. In particular, this project addresses the issue of geographic distribution of WIC clinics across Chicago neighborhoods, as these clinics are less accessible to residents living on the South Side of the city. Kristy is developing a needs and feasibility assessment and proposing an implementation plan for this initiative. Her work will contribute to creating policies that can better support gender equity in Chicago.
