Health Secretary Carlos Mellado López announced Tuesday that the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) will be directed by Roberto Carlos Pagán, effective immediately.


Pagán, in turn, will continue his duties as head of the Administration for the Integrated Care and Development of Children (ACUDEN by its Spanish acronym), an agency attached to the Family Department.


“With this appointment, we continue to integrate leaders into the Department’s team who will serve as support to strengthen services to the population in Puerto Rico,” Mellado López said in a written statement. “Pagán has a proven and outstanding track record from ACUDEN in favor of early childhood and families, efforts that work in parallel to integrate the assistance that childhood development needs. It is important to note that this appointment does not imply an operational expense for the Department of Health.”


Mellado López emphasized that the new WIC director will continue his vision and experience in both agencies to create an environment conducive to the growth, education and health of the child population, by focusing those services on the well-being of all.
