A group of health leaders and elected officials will be traveling to Tulsa in May to learn about that city’s public health department.
The visit is part of a new Public Health Sister City Program getting started in Sedgwick County.
Organizers picked Tulsa for the sister city program because it is similar in size and demographics to Wichita. The city also has an accredited public health department.
Becky Tuttle with Health ICT says the local group will learn about the Tulsa health department’s structure and core functions.
