Together Oklahoma — OK Policy’s grassroots advocacy program — has announced it will hold a community meeting for Creek County (both in-person and online) on Thursday, Dec. 8, at Bartlett-Carnegie Sapulpa Public Library.
The meeting will focus on the state of health care in Oklahoma, and feature special guest Sapulpa’s Vice Mayor Carla Gunn.
Oklahoma voters approved Medicaid expansion in June 2020, and the program was implemented the following summer. Since that time, more than 300,000 Oklahomans have gained health care coverage through Medicaid expansion. SoonerCare — the state’s Medicaid program — is proposed to transition to a managed care system.
While more people than ever have health care coverage, many still have long waits and long drives to see a doctor, especially in our rural communities. Join us at the Sapulpa Public Library to share some of the policies and actions you’d like to see the state make, and what we can do together to make sure every Oklahoman has access to quality health care.
It also will be an opportunity for Creek County residents to learn how Together Oklahoma works to help put power back in the hands of everyday Oklahomans, as well as the chance to connect with fellow advocates in the community.
The meeting will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the Board Room at Bartlett-Carnegie Sapulpa Public Library, 27 W. Dewey Ave. This event is hybrid, please join in-person or online at the following link: a virtual option is available via Zoom.
Additional Together Oklahoma meetings will be held across the state throughout December and January.
Together Oklahoma is a nonpartisan coalition of citizens working together to secure a robust future for our state. A program of the Oklahoma Policy Institute, Together OK serves as a grassroots education and advocacy group connecting Oklahoma values to state budget priorities
