A better state of health, together.
At UAMS Community Health & Research, we work with communities to identify and break down barriers that prevent people from achieving their best health.
Our staff helps communities navigate their health care, and provide resources and education to help them live longer, healthier lives. Our programs are offered in English, Spanish and Marshallese. Research staff, faculty and evaluation experts work to ensure that our programs are meaningful and that they are effectively influencing health behaviors.
Through research and action, we are creating a better state of health for all, together.
