Rogers County is proud to announce that 15 local entities have been awarded Certified Healthy status for 2015. Certified Healthy Oklahoma is a free statewide certification that recognizes entities going above and beyond to make health and wellness a priority for all. The program is open to businesses, campuses, communities, congregations, early childhood programs, restaurants, and schools.

Certified Healthy Oklahoma meets this challenge by recognizing a wide variety of entities that encourage health-focused behaviors and policies.

“These certifications provide opportunities for Rogers County to create environments that support health policies and individual health decisions that ultimately will improve Oklahoma’s health outcomes. We applaud all Certified Healthy Oklahoma recipients for making the healthy choice the easy choice and for helping to create a culture of wellness in their communities,” stated Larry Bergner, Regional Administrator for Rogers County Health Department.
