Together For Health Summit in Tulsa

Advancing Health Equity in Our Local Communities: TOGETHER!

Funded by the American Public Health Association

Health begins where we live, worship, work, and play. Learn about factors outside the medical care system that influence the health of our communities. We create new opportunities for better health by investing in where it starts in our communities--housing, food security, public transportation, literacy, education, and much more.

Congratulations, Elsa!

The Literacy Office wants to extend our congratulations to Elsa Escobar, one of our ESL students. Elsa's recipe for Almond-Spice Christmas Wreath Cookies was a finalist in Cook's Country Magazine! The cookies sound delicious. Way to go, Elsa! You can find Elsa's recipe in the December/January 2015 issue of Cook's Country.

El Dia de Los Muertos and Halloween

October is almost over, and that means that two holidays are coming up. Halloween, on October 31st, probably springs to mind first for most Americans, but the festival of El Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, will also take place over the upcoming weekend.  While those unfamiliar with the Day of the Dead may confuse it with Halloween, regarding both holidays as "spooky," actually the holidays are quite different, although they share some of the same roots in harvest festivals and the Catholic Church. Interested in learning more about Halloween and El Dia de los Muertos?
