The TSET Healthy Living Program: Investing in Oklahoma's Health
Half of all cancers are caused by obesity and tobacco use. Oklahoma has some of the highest rates of tobacco use and obesity in the nation. TSET Healthy Living Program grants are designed to prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease by preventing and reducing tobacco use and obesity on a local level. We currently issue grants to 50 organizations working in 63 counties.
Using a comprehensive approach, grantees work with businesses, city governments, community organizations and schools to encourage healthy eating, physical activity and tobacco-free lifestyles.
The TSET Healthy Living Grant Program seeks to lessen the burden of unhealthy behaviors before they take root. Reducing the risk factors of tobacco use and obesity will save lives and money. Designed with input from former TSET grantees, partner organizations and nationally recognized experts, the TSET Healthy Living Program replaces TSET’s long-running Communities of Excellence grants.
