norman cards

Community members along with health care workers in the Norman Regional Health System are turning to fun and creative ways to stay positive during the coronavirus.

Artistic Support for Norman Health Care Workers

There’s no doubt that health care workers are quickly learning how to adapt during these uncertain times. Reita Babek, an assistant coordinator with the TSET Healthy Living Program in Cleveland County, is pleased to see that dedication recognized.

Earlier this year, community members created chalk drawings to show support for health care workers at Norman Regional Health System in Cleveland County. The sidewalk images then were photographed and printed on greeting cards to be sent to workers. Thus far, 300 cards have been published.

Babek says community members wanted to recognize health care workers going above and beyond their normal work hours and duties. "Although it seems we are putting all our efforts into surviving the chaos; everyone is also simultaneously searching for ways to help each other, to give back in a time where everyone is in need," she said.  


Nearly 5 million teens across the United States are vaping and using tobacco.

TSET Healthy Youth Initiative Launches in August

The TSET Healthy Youth Initiative kicks off Aug. 3 and aims to help Oklahoma teens make informed choices to feel their best. The multifaceted statewide media campaign addresses vape and tobacco use, as well as obesity among Oklahoma youth ages 13-18. 

"Behind the Haze" will deliver educational content exposing the truth about vapes and discouraging all teens from vape use. "Down and Dirty" is designed to change tobacco and vape-related attitudes and behaviors among rural teens. The obesity prevention campaign will start in 2021.
