What should we know?

Health status in Oklahoma continues to decline, with age-adjusted death rates actually increasing since the 1980s.  In 2011, the United Health Foundation reported that Oklahoma's overall health ranking was 48th among 50 states.  Oklahoma has some of the highest rates of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other chronic health conditions in the nation.  The disparity evident in racial and ethnic minority populations for certain health outcomes and health factors, as illustrated in the "2012 Minority Health at a Glance" report, is one of the foremost critical factors that account for poor health status among the state's diverse and underserved populations.
