Piedmont Eastside Medical Center in Snellville has partnered with GNR Public Health to provide a monthly WIC bus at the medical center's North campus. The WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) Mobile Unit is a federally-funded initiative that offers health and nutrition services for pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, infants, and young children. The bus serves as a full-service WIC clinic, conducting appointments and loading eWIC cards with benefits on-site. Piedmont Eastside will host the WIC mobile unit on the first three Wednesdays of each month, offering WIC eligibility assistance, nutrition education, and outreach events such as a specialized farmer's market for WIC clients. The collaboration aims to provide accessible support for families in need and promote healthy outcomes for children in the community. For more information visit gwinnettdailypost.com.


STORY 2: opportunities


Five years ago, the city of Lawrenceville initiated the Summer of Impact program to offer paid internships to local high school students, enabling them to explore future career goals. This year, the program began with a unique "Signing Day" ceremony where 11 students signed contracts for eight-week summer internships. The program is a collaborative effort involving the city, Impact 46, Central Gwinnett and Discovery high schools, and Hearts to Nourish Hope. The selected students will intern at various organizations, including the Aurora Theatre, Barrios Virguez Attorneys, and the city of Lawrenceville. The program aims to develop future leaders and strengthen the local workforce while providing pathways for post-secondary options and professional networking opportunities.
