CAN works on a variety of projects to fulfill its mission and help citizens of Nowata County.
Partnership For Success (PFS) is a Cherokee Nation-funded grant which addresses the significant issues surrounding prescription drugs and their effects on the 12-25 year old population of Nowata County. This grant provides funding for community assessment and strategy development with the goal of reducing the number of accidental drug overdoses, decreasing the use of prescription narcotics and sedatives in Oklahoma, and providing training to non-medical personnel on the use of the overdose reversal medication Naloxone.
Established by voters, the Oklahoma Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET) is a state grantmaking trust devoted to preventing cancer and cardiovascular disease, Oklahoma’s leading causes of death. By awarding grants to schools, communities, state agencies and partner organizations, TSET works to improve the health of Oklahoma’s citizens. It also funds research and emerging opportunities in the public and private sectors. TSET initiatives are addressing Oklahoma’s most pressing public health issues — and creating healthier places for all Oklahomans to live, work, learn and play.
Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH) supports implementation of evidence-based strategies to improve the health of communities and reduce the prevalence of chronic disease. PICH builds on a body of knowledge developed through previously funded Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) programs and encourages collaborations with a multi-sectoral coalition to implement sustainable changes in communities where people live, learn, work, and play.
