P2H Monthly Update: April 2014
Street CReD: Urban Core
Tulsa’s Young Professionals are putting on an event to show Tulsa the impact built environment has on a community. Making streets more bicycle and pedestrian friendly promotes physical activity, and showcasing the recreational potential of parking lots can show how accessible physical activity opportunities can be. According to TYPros, the event will be “a celebration of all things walkable and bikeable downtown, as one of TYPros’ largest and most impactful events of the year returns in May with a full slate of activities designed to get people out of their cars and onto their feet — including art and music, sports recreation areas, disc golf and food trucks.”
The event will be May 4th beginning at 11am, downtown from 5th and Boston to the river. This is a family friendly event and is free to attend.
P2H Block Party: West Tulsa County
Community engagement is a top priority for P2H. On Tuesday, April 29, 2014 from 5-7pm Northwoods Fine Arts Academy in Sand Springs (1691 E. Old North Rd.) will host the next P2H Block Party. If your agency offers services to West Tulsa County, including Sand Springs and/or Berryhill, email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for a booth. We already have 23 agencies participating. This will be a fun evening!
There is also a P2H Block Party scheduled for May 19th from 5-7pm at Bixby Northeast Elementary & Intermediate. Email the above address to add your agency to the list for this event too.
The block parties are designed to bring residents together with community agencies who are there to serve them in a fun, family friendly and interactive way. We hope to see you there!
Collective Impact: Annual Evaluation
The P2H annual evaluation will begin the first week of May. We will launch an online survey for agencies to report how they are contributing to the collective health improvement effort ongoing in Tulsa County. The survey will inform the P2H annual report that is due out in July.
The annual report will focus on how all community partners are working toward the objectives set in the Community Health Improvement Plan in order to make a positive impact on the community’s top health concerns.
