Our Founding Fathers had a hand in
what you are feeling right now….they
set a moral high ground for us
“We hold these truths to be self evident,
that all men are created equal, that they
are endowed by their creator with
certain inalienable Rights, that among
these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of
Happiness.” Thomas Jefferson
France – Liberty, Equality, Fraternity
Germany – Unity, Justice and Freedom
Australia - Life, Liberty and Prosperity
George Kaiser – “with what we now
know, to not act is morally offensive.”
Advancing the moral high ground

1861 – Civil War, Liberty and Slavery
1870 – 15th Amendment, Voting Rights Race

1. Critical thinking
Study the problems. Be Honest About What is Not Right.
“To achieve health equity, Learning the anatomy of the community is
as important as learning the anatomy of the body.” a summer institute
central theme
2. Critical communications
Be able to persuade multiple audiences including peers, politicians
and the media.
Talk less and Listen more….
“Listen to the Patient, he is telling you the diagnosis.”

Critical Thinking - Tulsa’s Disparities In Health:
- 14 year difference in life expectancy North vs. South.
- North, East and West Tulsa; 40% of population, 4% of Docs
Age-Adjusted Death Rate in Tulsa
Physician Density in Tulsa
Critical Communications: “Is
Tulsa North Being Pimped by
OU?” January 2010
“To Tulsa north’s ‘rescue,’ Oklahoma University has come. Unquestionably, medical care is
needed in Tulsa north. Why then, pose such a negative question when OU appears to be
doing the right thing?”
“Our answer….Pimps use the bodies of women to make money. For whatever reason, the
women are vulnerable. The residents of Tulsa north are very vulnerable because of their
poor health outcomes. Hundreds of millions of dollars will be spent ostensibly for better
health care for Tulsa north residents. Who gets the money for such an endeavor? OU
will. Who receives $20 million dollars for building the facility? Manhattan Construction
has been selected as the contractor.”
“If a healthy community is the goal of OU, does it not recognize that a healthy community
involves more than improving traditional healthcare facilities and services? A healthy
community must have a good economy and a chance for good jobs for its residents.
Tulsa north’s personal sense of well-being and its ability to thrive socially and
economically are tied together. It is impossible to have a healthy community without a
strong educational and economic engine in its midst.”
“Why do we pose the question, “Is Tulsa north being pimped by OU?” Do not pimps use
bodies to get income? OU will receive income from treating sick bodies. When will OU
learn that the elimination of healthcare disparities among population groups is not a zero
sum game?”
