What makes OK In the Know great? Members like YOU!

Did you know?

The OK In the Know Community Council gives a unified voice to the interests and desires of members working at the local and regional levels throughout Oklahoma. The Community Council represents the participating groups on OK In the Know, and they meet monthly to provide strategic direction on ways to make OK In the Know more useful and provide input on initiatives to support collaboration.

Since forming in fall 2016, the Community Council has already found creative ways we can help each other do our grant work more efficiently and work together toward shared public health goals.

The Community Council…
  • Provides input into decisions about priorities for OK In the Know tools and strategies for collaboration
  • Gathers feedback from OK In the Know members and represent local grantees
  • Fosters relationships between OK In the Know members, including lead agency staff, Community Managers, and fellow grantees
  • Helps others become more familiar with OK In the Know
