FLOWCo began as a project of the Preventative Health Partnership, a sub-committee of the Washington County Wellness Initiative with sponsorship by the City of Bartlesville, Jane Phillips Medical Center, and the Washington County Health Department. The program was modeled after the successful RoCo Fit program in Roger County. The goal of programs like FLOWCo is to promote an environment of safe and healthy lifestyles to improve the poor ranking in health behavior and outcome statistics for Washington County. With a group of dedicated, fun, knowledgeable, and very giving people who mentor the participants, as well as community partnerships, FLOWCo aims to improve the health of Washington County one step or stride at a time.
