The Sullivan County Regional Health Department offers a wide and varied range of services to our community.  For our women and children we offer immunizations and WIC.  WIC (Women, Infants and Children) is a nutritional program for pregnant moms and children through age 5. Lead poisoning prevention programs, school health services for Sullivan County School System, and children’s school exams are also offered.  Programs for children and moms provide assistance for coordination of care for the needs of the mothers and children. Pregnancy tests, birth control, and family planning services are offered as well as STD (sexually transmitted disease) confidential education, counseling, and treatment. Breast and cervical cancer screening services are available at both the Blountville and Kingsport offices.
