The Logan County Partnership is conducting a new comprehensive Community Health Assessment of Logan County. The new assessment data will be used to develop a new Community Health Improvement Plan.
As a part of this Community Health Assessment, we surveyed the community to obtain input about community health topics. Responses were confidential. Everyone who lives and/or works in Logan County was welcome to take the survey. The survey is now complete and results can be viewed by clicking here.
In addition, we are gathering public health data from a wide variety of sources.
We encourage you to review this data and let us know if you have any thoughts, concerns or questions. You may leave a public comment by clicking on the link towards the bottom of the page, or you may call or email Mikeal Murray at (405)282-3485.

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.

As stated above, the Logan County Partnership coalition, of which the Logan County Health Department is an active member, is conducting a new community health assessment and beginning a new cycle of community strategic planning. In the mean time, the previous community health assessment, and resulting community health improvement plan and Logan County Health Department Strategic Plan, are available for public review. Both of these plans concluded in October of 2018. They demonstrate improvement in a number of health outcomes, and also opportunities for improvement.
