About Oklahoma In The Know

Are you In the Know?

The In the Know learning community is a meeting ground for Oklahomans to learn, connect, collaborate, mentor, innovate, and inspire their communities toward health and wellness.

Health and wellness coalition members, community leaders, volunteers, and members of the public are encouraged to browse through our community news and resources to stay up to date on the latest information about effective efforts to prevent and reduce tobacco use, improve physical activity and nutrition, and prevent substance abuse. This community will help you find resources, tools and techniques and learn how you can help make your community a healthier place to live.

The In the Know community also provides a password-protected area where grantees and staff associated with community-based prevention programs can gather within an exciting and innovative collaborative space to learn, connect, and work together. Members can use the community forum to engage peers in discussions, search for specialized public health resources, access professional development courses, find and share program materials, and collaborate with other leaders in public health.

As an active member of In the Know learning community, you will experience many opportunities to create and maintain rich relationships; engage in active learning through inquiry and sharing; and connect to the larger public health community.

Complex problems require comprehensive solutions. Working together, we can create a healthier Oklahoma for the future. Visit our community regularly to stay In the Know.
