This program addresses the needs of pregnant women, mothers, infants,
children and adolescents in order to protect, promote, and improve their health.  

During the current contract with the Department of Health and Senior Services,
ACHD is  focusing on  folic acid to decrease birth defects  as well as improving
Audrain County birth outcomes by offering education and information to parents
and caregivers in an effort to increase awareness, improve knowledge and
communication.  

A nutrition component has been added to the Love & Logic parenting classes.  
These classes are offered by ACHD at least two times a year.  The classes are
designed to encourage healthier parental relationships and healthier bodies and
minds.
