CHD - Canadian County.jpgCanadian County Health Department

Welcome to the website of the Canadian County Health Department.  We hope it is helpful for your personal health, the health of your family, and the health of our communities. 

Our MISSION is "to protect and promote health, to prevent disease and injury, and to cultivate conditions by which Oklahomans can be healthy."  Our VISION is "Creating a State of Health."  

We do this by monitoring the health of our communities, identifying and responding to health threats, providing timely and accurate information, enforcing laws that protect health, and providing quality services to prevent and control disease.

 


 

Beginning in the Fall of 2012, the Canadian County Coalition for Children and Families, of which the Canadian County Health Department is an active participant, began a process to assess the comprehensive health status of the county.  Organizers used the "Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships" (MAPP) model.  The Canadian County Community Health Assessment and its accompanying attachments are listed below and can be viewed by clicking on the links:

In November 2013, a sub-committee of the Canadian County Coalition for Children and Families met to review the Community Health Assessment Data and identify five priority issues.  After doing this, the sub-committee brainstormed objectives and strategies for addressing these five priority issues. The results of this effort were taken to the Logan County Partnership for review, modification, and approval. The final result was the Logan County Community Health Improvement Plan.

WIC is a federally funded nutrition education and supplemental food program for low income pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women, infants, and children up to 5 years of age.  The WIC program is based on the size of the family and the income brought into the home.  WIC provides women, infants, and children with nutritious supplemental foods, nutrition education, and referrals for health care. 

A priority for the WIC program is to ensure that mothers and eligible families with young children have the nutritional knowledge necessary to assure their children's proper nutrition intake.  WIC provides nutritious foods tailored to supplement the dietary needs of participants to ensure good health, growth and development.  

Numerous studies have shown that pregnant women who participate in WIC have longer pregnancies leading to fewer premature births; have fewer low and very low birth-weight babies; experience fewer fetal and infant deaths; seek prenatal care earlier in pregnancy and consume more of key nutrients such as iron, protein, calcium, and vitamins A and C.  The WIC program encourages and supports breastfeeding by providing a wide range of breastfeeding services and support activities to expectant and new mothers.
