Thank you for visiting the AMHC website. I hope the resources available have been helpful.
Minority health determines the health of our state and our nation. Minority populations continue to have lower socioeconomic status, greater barriers to health-care access, and greater risks for, and burden of, disease compared with the general population living in the same county or state.
It is my vision to serve as Arkansas’s authority for all aspects of minority health and bridge the gap in the health status of minority populations to that of majority populations in Arkansas. Most importantly, I want the Commission to be the resource first thought of for all minority health information from every level (individual, family, school, church, community, city, county and statewide).
My goal is to make your health, our priority.
