From the Daily Oklahoman, an article, Federal dollars Help Target Disease Prevention in Oklahoma County, One ZIP Code at a Time,  which highlights the use of Community Transformation Grant (CTG) resources for a program, My Heart, My Health, My Family, providing prevention services, including wellness classes, to educate residents on "healthy eating habits, from proper portion sizes to the benefits of substituting water or tea for sugary drinks like fountain sodas.  In exchange, participants are rewarded with access to free regular clinical checkups four times a year — including free medication — and to a wealth of information aimed at keeping them out of the emergency room.” -- http://newsok.com/federal-dollars-help-target-disease-prevention-in-oklahoma-county-one-zip-code-at-a-time/article/3718718#ixzz29f5pmpge
