Galveston County Health District WIC Hosting Free Class for Parents of Infants

GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas – The Women, Infants and Children (WIC) division of the Galveston County Health District (GCHD) is happy to host another free parenting class focusing on infants. The 10-week class will take place at the GCHD Texas City WIC clinic starting on October 16, 2017.

The class, called The Incredible Years, is a collaboration with the Galveston New Parenting Initiative. Parents, guardians and caregivers of newborn through one-year-old children are encouraged to register quickly as class size is limited. Participants will receive free diapers and a meal at each class.

“This will be our third such class focusing on infants and the feedback has been great,” said Eileen Dawley, GCHD Chief Nursing Officer. “We look forward to giving another group of new parents the opportunity to sit down with each other and experts to learn about the incredible journey of raising a child.”
