WINTERSET 2017: Beneficiary Organizations

Many thanks to our physicians who recommended Tulsa area non-profit organizations to receive Winterset grants. The Foundation’s Charitable Gifts Committee has selected the following two community organizations to receive grants from Winterset 2017 proceeds.

H.O.P.E. (HEALTH OUTREACH PREVENTION EDUCATION, INC.)

H.O.P.E.’s mission is to create a healthier community by providing outreach and clinic services focused on HIV, Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD), and Hepatitis C (HCV) prevention, education, counseling, testing and, for those who test positive, referral to medical care and social services. H.O.P.E. has provided HIV and STD testing in Tulsa and surrounding communities for nearly 20 years at its clinic and through a variety of targeted outreach sites. H.O.P.E. also offers testing in a mobile van, which travels to locations across Green Country. More than half of H.O.P.E.’s clients are uninsured, underinsured or underserved.

OSU CENTER FOR HEALTH SCIENCES

Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences educates and trains osteopathic physicians, research scientists and other health care professionals with an emphasis on providing health care for rural and underserved Oklahoma. Funding from Winterset will go towards the ICU Simulation Suite in the new A.R. and MaryLouise Tandy Medical Academic Building.

Scholarships for Student Doctors

Additionally, Winterset funds support the education mission of the Foundation by benefitting student doctors in their fourth year of medical school. Proceeds provide scholarships to assist them in their efforts to become our state’s next generation of osteopathic physicians.
