Head Lice Treatment

Collaboration between the Council Bluffs Public Health Department, Visiting Nurse Association of Pottawattamie County, and Council Bluffs Community School District has resulted in a head lice treatment program that is funded through the generosity of the Dodge Trust and Ameristar Casino.

This program provides supplies needed for families in the community who are dealing with this nuisance problem. Supplies are coordinated and kept in stock by the Health Department nurses. The Health Department nurses are available for consultation to families and schools on the issue of head lice treatment.
