Johnson County Public Health (JCPH) is pleased to announce three new clinics offering services of the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) -- including one located in Coralville.
WIC is a nutrition education and food assistance program for pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women and children to age five years. WIC can help families find other needed resources like doctors, dentists, and medical insurance. I-Smile services will also be offered to children and pregnant people at these clinics which includes a dental screening, fluoride varnish, education, and referral to a dentist.
All clinics will be open from 9:30 am – 4:00 pm monthly on the designated day. Call 319.356.6042 to make an appointment or for additional details. The location and schedule is as follows:

Fourth Tuesday of the month:Coralville United Methodist Church (in 2nd level classrooms)806 13th AvenueCoralville, IA(Opens for the first time on October 25)
JCPH expanded WIC clinics in Johnson County to improve the accessibility to services for county residents especially where transportation is a barrier. “We analyzed the addresses of families currently receiving WIC and families who are eligible for Medicaid to identify clusters of where they live and sites for clinics to close these clusters. We anticipate this will help families already on WIC as well as attract families who have never been on WIC due to transportation issues,” said Chuck Dufano, WIC Coordinator for Johnson County.
