Aired on Monday, July 11th.

What do we mean by the phrase "public health"? What exactly does this term refer to? What sorts of treatments, goals, activities, and populations does it cover? On this edition of our program, we speak with Dr. Bruce Dart, who is Executive Director of the Tulsa City-County Health Department -- and who's also a Visiting Associate Professor at the OU-Tulsa College of Public Health. Dr. Dart has been with the Tulsa City-County Health Department for more than five years now, and he says that his organization works in a variety of ways each and every day to make the Greater Tulsa area a healthier place. You'll find more information about this tax-funded organization -- whose locally focused mission is to "sustain an equitable system that prevents disease, promotes healthy living, and ensures preparedness" -- at the TCCHD website, which also offers detailed data across the following categories: Food Safety, Personal Health, Family Health, Community Health, and Environmental Health.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
