Why Collaborate with It’s All About Kids
Since its beginning in 2004, the Tulsa Health Department’s It's All About Kids (IAK) program has provided an opportunity for thousands of school children to improve their knowledge, attitudes and behaviors toward nutrition and exercise through comprehensive health education. Learning healthy habits early follows them throughout their lifetime.
Each year, the program reaches over 8,500 students in Tulsa County public school districts, and hosts more than 40 informative and exciting events for parents and families. The program was recognized as a Model Practice in 2008 by the National Association for City and County Health Officials (NACCHO).
It’s All About Kids partners with schools to capture valuable data in the areas of academic improvement, decrease in behavioral referrals, and increase in attendance. IAK follows the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model placing children in the center as the main focus. The WSCC merges components from both the Coordinated School Health model and the Whole Child Framework to align learning and health.

"I wanted to take a moment to thank the IAK team and Tulsa Roughnecks for coming to our school. Sugar Shockers was such a fun and interactive way to remind our students about making healthy life choices! They are still talking about it and they loved doing the Wobble dance with Oil-E Coyote. I appreciate all of the help your team offers for our students and teachers. I have learned so much in spending time with you all. Again, WHAT A FANTASTIC ASSEMBLY FOR OUR KIDDOS!!!"
