Welcome to the website of the Lincoln County Health Department.  We hope you find it 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.

 


As part of the 2019 Lincoln County Fitness Challenge, a Healthy Living Directory was created to make sure residents from across the county had ideas about places where they could walk and approximate distances they may cover. To see it, click on the cover 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.
