P2H Monthly Update: October 2013
Mark Your Calendar: Community Health Forum
Please join us as the mayoral candidates for the City of Tulsa take part in the city’s first community health forum of its kind on October 28th from 6-7:30pm at Tulsa Community College’s Center for Creativity, 910 S. Boston Ave. The non-partisan forum is open to the public although space is limited. Doors will open at 5 p.m. The event is co-sponsored by the Tulsa Health Department and Morton Comprehensive Health Services.
Questions for the candidates will be based upon the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP), produced by Pathways to Health, in an effort to further raise awareness about the top health concerns identified in the Community Health Needs Assessment. In addition to the hour of discussion around the CHIP, there will be 30 minutes for the audience to ask questions related to the health of Tulsa. This is a great opportunity for P2H members to ask questions in the health areas that interest us most.
Both candidates have received a copy of the Tulsa County CHIP and we anticipate a great event. As a member of P2H, your support and attendance at the event would be greatly appreciated.
Making Connections: P2H Block Party
Pathways to Health partners have been busy promoting the Community Health Improvement Plan in an effort to start conversations around the top 6 community health concerns featured in the plan.
Our first two P2H Block Parties were very successful. The neighborhoods around Hick’s Park and Cooper Elementary participated in family friendly activities designed to encourage conversations about healthy living and connect residents with community partners in their area to serve them.
We are looking forward to our third P2H Block Party taking place at Marshall Elementary at 56th and Peoria on November 7th from 4:30-7:30pm.
There will be three additional block parties in the Spring. More information will be shared as details become available.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if your agency would like to participate.
