Coronavirus Response Program Established

OKLAHOMA CITY – The START Coalition has established a pilot program to provide communities with data and strategies to implement a coordinated response designed to make spaces safer, interrupt the spread of the coronavirus and enable people to get back to their lives and livelihoods.

The START Coalition has assembled a nationwide partnership of representatives from academia, health care, government, business and technology sectors to design and implement applications for prevention of the spread of COVID-19. The initiative will begin in Oklahoma City and expand to partner communities across the nation.

In Oklahoma City, the START Coalition’s network includes the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation and the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. START will initiate a program custom-designed for Oklahoma City.

“In Oklahoma City, we have a history of moving swiftly to combat tragedy,” said Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation President Stephen Prescott.

START Coalition partners include Harvard Medical School’s Center for Global Health Delivery and representatives from Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy.

The START Coalition is a nonprofit organization.
