The Health Alliance for the Uninsured is honored and humbled to be chosen as Community Health Champion by the Oklahoma Turning Point Council.
The Oklahoma Turning Point Council (OTPC) was formed in 1997 to help transform public health in Oklahoma by working directly with community partnerships on health improvement initiatives. Rather than a top-down approach to public health, Turning Point seeks input from communities to help identify community priorities and implement local solutions. For over 20 years, Turning Point has partnered with communities all across Oklahoma to work on local innovations such as community health centers, extensive walking trails, community gardens, improved school health activities and advocacy for health improvement policies. Moreover, OTPC continues as an independent statewide consortium focused on policy issues aimed at improving Oklahoma’s health.
