TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma State Department of Health will host a community meeting this week to learn what Tulsa residents believe are their most critical health needs.

Wednesday’s event at the Community Service Council is part of a series of meetings planned throughout the state through June.

Public feedback will be used to update the Oklahoma Health Improvement Plan, which first launched in 2009.

The plan was mandated by state lawmakers in 2008 and directs health officials to prepare a report outlining how to improve the wellbeing of all Oklahomans.

The current version of the plan focuses on three initiatives: improving children’s health, preventing tobacco use and reducing obesity.

Residents who can’t attend Wednesday’s meeting can still participate by completing an online survey at https://ohip.health.ok.gov .
