About the Campaign

The Oklahoma State Department of Health is pleased to highlight the faces of those who work every day to improve the health of Oklahomans. This campaign features all aspects of public health to illustrate the work being done across the state. Our dedicated employees work in their individual positions to contribute to the greater cause of public health. In these profiles, we aim to show exactly how public health touches the lives of every Oklahoman.
