The Certified Healthy Oklahoma program began in 2003 as a collaborative initiative with four founding partners -- the Oklahoma Turning Point Council, the Oklahoma Academy for State Goals, the Oklahoma State Chamber, and the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Certified Healthy Oklahoma has grown tremendously since its inception and is changing the face of Oklahoma’s health. Whether you are a business, a school, a restaurant, a campus, or an Oklahoma community, you can help Shape Our Future by becoming certified as a healthy place to live, work and learn.

The Oklahoma Department of Libraries (ODL) is an agency of Oklahoma State Government.  Established as the Oklahoma Territorial Library in 1893, the Department of Libraries serves the citizens of Oklahoma in collaboration with the public libraries in Oklahoma.  Using federal funds, ODL licenses electronic content in education, health, and business available to Oklahomans in their library or in their home and work with an Internet connection.  Many public libraries offer meeting spaces for local organizations such as Turning Point Coalitions or offer physical activity classes or speakers about making healthy choices.  Every county in Oklahoma has at least one public library.  Check us out!
