About the Member Survey
The OK In the Know team conducts a member survey annually to gather feedback on the tools, resources, and training available from OK In the Know. From this feedback, our web team learns how how this training initiative is helping move public health forward in Oklahoma and what more we can do to continue to make the collaboration more useful. Then, we work with the Community Council and users like you to make those things happen.
Thank you to those who filled out the member survey in the spring. The OK In the Know Team values your input.
