The TSET Healthy Living Program at the Oklahoma City-County Health Department is working to make the healthy choice the easy choice through policy and practice changes in schools and other settings. We know that schools are often motivated to make changes to improve the health and wellness of their students and staff but lack the resources to take action. The TSET Healthy Living Program Coordinators can help. Our focus is in the areas of Tobacco Use Prevention, Promotion of Physical Activity and Nutrition, and Employee Wellness. We create partnerships with schools and work within the school’s timeline and interests. The best part is that our services are completely free!
