Grant County Health Improvement Organization (CHIO) Survey
My name is Juli Pack and I am the Program Coordinator for a network development grant recently awarded to Rural Health to expand the Garfield County Health Improvement Organization (CHIO) into Grant County. The CHIO is a newly formed group designed to help improve the health of the population by bridging community efforts (i.e. mental & public health, social services, non-profits, public schools, etc.) with what primary care practitioners are doing in practice and in the community. We are currently conducting a survey that will help us determine what the citizens of Grant County believe are the most important and what you would like to see addressed. We would love to hear from you! Please click on the link below to complete the survey. It generally takes less than five minutes. Your participation is greatly appreciated! https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DXTFT93

Oklahoma College Date Base Link
The Online College Database provides future post-secondary students with the information they need (at no cost) to make informed decisions about where to attend college. The Online team has created an easy-to-digest guide to all the 61 colleges in Oklahoma, including the 40 four-year colleges and the 21 two-year schools. Important factors such as tuition, enrollment size, campus setting, male / female ratio, student-to-faculty ratio, ROTC availability and acceptance rate have been included for each college. Our data comes exclusively from U.S. federal government databases such as the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). This information, combined with our easy-to-use interface with Google Maps integration, creates a helpful educational resource that students can use free of charge.
