Examining the Roots of Oklahoma’s Social Problems
As heard on KGOU Monday, January15, 2007 at 11am

Oklahoma often takes the top spot in rankings the state would rather not be winning. Whether it’s the number of women behind bars, the rate of heart disease or mental illness, we struggle to break the stigma associated with our poor performance on many national studies. The Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy is one of several organizations in the state working to change those numbers. KGOU’s Kurt Gwartney speaks with the Institute’s Executive Director, Anne Roberts, about the Adverse Childhood Experience Study, which provides some fresh insights into why Oklahoma has trouble breaking out of its low rankings.
