Lottie House Health Cookout

May is Mental Health month.  Did you know….?

  • About 1 in 5 American adults will have a mental health condition in any given year, but only 41% of them will seek services.
  • About 10% of the American adult population will have a mood disorder, such as bipolar or depression.
  • 18% have an anxiety disorder, including post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Alliance has partnered with Mental Health Association Oklahoma, a drop in center that assists adults experiencing the challenges of living with mental illness, co-occuring disorder or homelessness.  We are going to grill up some fun and cook lunch for more than 4 dozen folks.  And don’t worry, we’ll provide the apron!

Please volunteer from 11:30am – 2:00pm

History of Medicine in OKC

A coffee table book that will document the history of medicine in Oklahoma County from the beginning to current times is in the works.  John Compton has written such books in many communities across the country and began a partnership with OCMS a year ago.  It is expected that the book will be published in December this year.  The Alliance has purchased two pages within the book to document the partnership we have enjoyed since 1925.  You will be hearing more about this book as the months pass and you will be given the opportunity to purchase one for your enjoyment.

John Compton is offering half pages and full pages for sale to medical families who would like to document their families’ involvement in the medical profession in OKC.  The pages typically have several photos with a story attached.  John and his assistant can help with writing after you have submitted your family information.  If you would like to share your family member’s career, please contact John at OCMS 702-0500.The purchase of ½ page costs $1200; full page costs $2100.

Medicine Day 2015

MEDICINE DAY LEGISLATIVE RECEPTION

Tuesday, February 17th 5:00 PM—7:00 PM Oklahoma State Medical Association 313 NE 50th St., Oklahoma City

With the support of physicians and their spouses, Oklahoma’s medical community has made great strides at the State Capitol in areas such as lawsuit reform, scope of practice and reimbursement. But now is the time to keep the heat on our lawmakers to support physicians and their patients in Oklahoma.

Please join us for our annual Medicine Day Legislative Reception. It’s a great opportunity to meet with your state lawmakers and your fellow physicians. Your attendance will help us send a message to policymakers that the House of Medicine is united in its drive to improve the health of all Oklahomans, but we need their support. Please mark your calendar and plan to join us for this fun but important event.
