Posted April 8, 2019 - NEW COMMUNITY SURVEY

The Canadian County Health Department, in cooperation with the Canadian County Coalition for Children and Families, is conducting a new comprehensive Community Health Assessment of Canadian County. The new assessment data will be used to develop a new Community Health Improvement Plan.

As part of this Community Health Assessment, we want to know what you think and how you feel about different community health topics. To do this, we ask that you take our survey. Responses are confidential. Anyone who lives and/or works in Canadian County is welcome to take the survey. Please take the survey only once! You can access the survey by clicking here.

The new State of the State's Health Report has been released on a dedicated website that can be accessed by clicking here. We urge you to check out this website and the State of the State's Health Report to see what it has to offer. For the convenience of our community partners and residents, we have compiled a version of the State of the State's Health Report that displays Canadian County specific data. You can see this version of the report by clicking on the link located in the left hand blue column. Please let us know what you think or if you have any questions.

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 Canadian County Coalition for review, modification, and approval. The final result was the Canadian County Community Health Improvement Plan.

Canadian County CHIP

In September of 2015, the Canadian County Health Department put together a strategic planning team to develop a five-year strategic plan.  The team was responsible for gathering data to be used during the planning process including:  community health assessment data, community health improvement plan objectives and strategies, Oklahoma State Health Improvement Plan objectives, and current strategic plan goals outlined in the agency's performance management system.  This information, gathered from all levels of internal staff and community partnerships, provided the foundational data necessary for strategic planning.  The final result was the Canadian County Health Department Strategic Plan.  This document can be viewed by clicking on the report below:

WIC (Women, Infants and Children)

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.  WIC 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 WIC 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.  

Studies show 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. WIC encourages and supports breastfeeding by providing a wide range of breastfeeding services and support activities to expectant and new mothers.
