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.

In the spring of 2011, the Logan County Partnership coalition, of which the Logan County Health Department is an active participant, began a process to assess the comprehensive health status of the county. To do this in an organized, comprehensive way, organizers used the nationally recognized – Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) process. The Logan County Community Health Assessment and its accompanying attachments are listed below and can be viewed by clicking on the links:
Attachment A - Community Themes and Strengths Assessment
In January 2013, a sub-committee off the Logan County Partnership 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.

In July of 2013, the Logan County Health Department convened a Strategic Planning Team to participate in the strategic planning process. This team was responsible for gathering all 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 a five-year Logan County Health Department Strategic Plan. This document can be viewed by clicking on the link below:
