OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahomans will have the opportunity to voice their opinions about what constitutes quality health care at a town hall meeting Monday in Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City was one of three cities chosen this year by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to host a town hall meeting.

Dean of the OU College of Public Health Gary Raskob says Oklahomans have a tremendous opportunity to influence the nation's health policy through the meeting.

The discussion will be from 10 AM to 1 PM Monday at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.

A similar meeting has been conducted by the agency in Chapel Hill in North Carolina. Another forum is scheduled for November 8th in Philadelphia.
