Project Overview: Oklahoma City County Health Department will implement Project REACH (Reproductive Education to Achieve Community Health), an innovative adolescent health improvement initiative focused on middle and high schools in three Oklahoma County metro public school districts with student populations that reflect high teen birth rates, persistent health disparities, and increased adverse childhood experiences. REACH will use the proven effective curricula Nu-Culture, Get Real, Positive Prevention PLUS, and Love Notes to address systems, equity issues, populations, geographic areas, and programs identified as priorities in the community’s comprehensive teen pregnancy prevention plan.
