Former Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett will bring his expertise on addressing a community’s health to the stage at the first-ever State of Health luncheon on Monday, May 13. Cornett’s keynote remarks will include an overview of how Oklahoma City’s health outcomes have changed since he challenged residents to lose 1 million pounds in 2011. He will also discuss what he has learned from other communities that are also addressing their biggest health challenges. Reserve your spot.
