North Country Family Health Center

The Watertown and Lowville, NY WIC programs offer nutrition, health, and wellness support for qualifying women, infants, and children. If you’re struggling to pay for high-quality foods for yourself or your child, need help with nutrition counseling, or you’re searching for the right health and social services, the North Country Family Health Center can help. The program is for all local residents who meet the eligibility requirements, and is a powerful tool for wellness.

Our WIC services for Watertown and Lowville, NY enable caretakers and pregnant women to purchase whole foods, appropriate supplements, and much-needed supplies without worrying about the costs. WIC program support works only at authorized facilities, including grocery stores and pharmacies. Ask the North Country Family Health Center administrators for more information about health and social services, breastfeeding support, nutrition counseling, and more. Call or stop by our Jefferson or Lewis County WIC offices today to learn more.
