NHCC serves as a satellite office for the Madison County Health Department. Officials are at the clinic on Fridays to administer the Women, Infants & Children (WIC) Nutrition Program. WIC is a federally funded program that provides free food and nutritional education to pregnant and breast feeding women, children up to age five, along with free baby formula to infants. Nutritionists and nurses assess each applicant and tailor a food and counseling package to meet that person’s needs. Information about the program and what it takes to qualify can be obtained at this office.
You can make appointments for the WIC program by calling the Madison County Health Department at its main number 256-539-3711.
