Oklahoma Health Department holding community meeting in Tulsa to determine residents' needs

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- The Oklahoma Health Department will host a community meeting on April 16, to learn what Tulsa residents believe are their most critical health needs.

Wednesday's event at the Community Service Council is part of a series of meetings planned throughout the state through June.

Public feedback will be used to update the Oklahoma Health Improvement Plan, which first launched in 2009.

The plan was mandated by state lawmakers in 2008 and directs health officials to prepare a report outlining how to improve the well-being of all Oklahomans.

The current version of the plan focuses on three initiatives:  improving children's health, preventing tobacco use and reducing obesity.

The meeting will be held at the Community Service Council, 16 East 16th St., from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Residents who can't attend Wednesday's meeting can still participate by completing an online survey at http://ohip.health.ok.gov.
