Wyoming's "My 307 Wellness"
My 307 Wellness is an app by the Wyoming Department of Health. The app can connect you with programs like the Wyoming Quit Tobacco Program, WIC, Wyoming Cancer Resource Services, and WY Quality counts.
The app can also help you track your and your family’s medical appointments, medical history, and other important information. You can add everyone from yourself and your children to your grandparents and other loved ones. There’s even a growth tracker and an immunization tracker which is a great way to make sure your kids are up-to-date on their recommended shots.
New mothers will appreciate the diaper and feeding trackers, and expecting mothers will love the due date calculator, kick counter, and daily tips.
Plus, if you ever feel like you go to the doctor and don’t know what to say, there are family checklists available where you can take notes and remember what you want to ask the doctor.
My 307 Wellness is free - you can download it even if you are not yet enrolled in Medicaid!
