Applications for all Certified Healthy Oklahoma programs will now be accepted by the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) through Nov. 25. Award winners will be notified in December and acknowledged at an awards ceremony in March.
An important contributor to improving the health of Oklahomans is providing opportunities to make healthier choices where we live, work, learn and play. The Certified Healthy Oklahoma programs help meet this challenge by recognizing those communities, schools, businesses, campuses, early childhood programs, congregations and restaurants that encourage health-focused behaviors and policies.
The Certified Healthy Business program recognizes workplaces, such as hospitals, that provide healthy living opportunities to their employees.
Each program has three levels of certification: Basic, Merit and Excellence.
The Certified Healthy Oklahoma programs are a joint effort of the Oklahoma State Department of Health, The State Chamber, The Oklahoma Academy, Oklahoma Turning Point Council and numerous other partners who are helping to shape a healthier future for Oklahoma.
Criteria details and application information for all Certified Healthy Oklahoma programs are now available on the Certified Healthy Oklahoma website at www.certifiedhealthyok.com.
Qualivis was developed as a collaborative effort among multiple state hospital associations to meet the temporary staffing needs of member hospitals and health systems.
