The Oklahoma Turning Point Council requests your participation in a short survey to help shape its policy objectives for 2018 and 2019. Please complete the survey by close of business Wednesday, September 6, 2017.
OTPC was formed in 1997 to help transform public health in Oklahoma. Rather than a “top-down approach,” Turning Point actively seeks input from community partners to help identify top priorities and implement local solutions. OTPC serves as an education and advocacy hub to a network of approximately 70 local partnerships throughout Oklahoma. OTPC is an independent statewide consortium that focuses on policy issues aimed to improve overall health status in Oklahoma.
