Sen. Allison Ikley-Freeman appointed to state health care board

Sen. Allison Ikley-Freeman, D-Tulsa, was recently appointed to the Oklahoma Health Care Workforce Resources Board.

The board governs the Oklahoma Health Care Workforce Resources Center (OHCWRC), which was created in 2006 to collect and analyze data relating to health care worker supply and demand trends; ensure Oklahoma’s education and training systems have the resources to support and produce the number of health care workers needed in the state; increase awareness among citizens of health care careers and opportunities; and improve job satisfaction and retention rates of state health care employees.

As a member of the board, Ikley-Freeman will be responsible for the oversight of the executive director of the OHCWRC.

“I’m excited to get to work on the Oklahoma Health Care Workforce Resources Board, and am thankful to Sen. Floyd for the opportunity,” Ikley-Freeman said. “As we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to ensure we are recruiting our state’s best and brightest to fill our health care related jobs, as well as provide the support our current health care workers need to be successful.”

Ikley-Freeman was appointed to the post by Senate Minority Leader Kay Floyd, D-Oklahoma City.

“I am pleased to appoint Senator Allison Ikley-Freeman to the Oklahoma Health Care Workforce Resources Board,” said Senate Democratic Leader Kay Floyd. “As a mental health professional, Senator Ikley-Freeman will bring a much-needed perspective to this board.”
