Family Health

Freeborn County promotes healthy families and safe, nurturing environments for children. The Family Health program supports families as they learn about:

  • Healthy Pregnancies
  • Positive Parenting
  • Health and Nutrition
  • Infant and Child Growth and Development
  • Childhood Safety and Injury Prevention
  • Family and Community Relationships

Public Health staff provide services by phone, at community sites, or on home visits with families. The Follow Along Program (FAP) helps parents monitor their children’s development. The Child and Teen Check-Ups Program helps families access preventive medical and dental care.
