WIC Nutrition
WIC is a supplemental food and nutrition/breastfeeding education program that helps pregnant women, new mothers, and young children to eat and live healthily. Clients receive nutrition and breastfeeding counseling, vouchers for nutritious foods, and assistance with referrals to needed services. Breast pumps are available on loan for breast-feeding moms.
Health Education
Health Educators support patients living with chronic diseases through one-on-one appointments, groups, and classes. They meet with patients to provide chronic disease management support including diabetes, prediabetes, cholesterol, blood pressure, glucometer teaching, basic nutrition, asthma, tobacco cessation, family planning, exercise, and goal setting. Health Education classes are always free and include exercise groups, cooking workshops, yoga, diabetes management, and gardening.

Maternity Support Services (MSS) and Infant Case Management
The main goal of MSS is to help women have a healthy pregnancy outcome.

Medicaid-eligible pregnant women receive support and information related to pre-natal and post-partum health, and the care of their newborn. Nurses, social workers, and community health workers support expectant mothers before birth and after birth for two months. All services are covered by the medical coupons at no cost to clients. Families may also be eligible for Infant Case Management, a program that provides support and services to infants from 3- to 12-months old.
