The Arkansas Minority Health Commission is dedicated to ensuring that minority Arkansans have equal access to health, health care and preventive care and information. The AMHC’s role in public health is to be a catalyst in bridging the gap in the health status of the minority population and that of the majority population in Arkansas. To accomplish this goal, it will require many changes in our personal, community, state and federal approach (and responsibility) to reducing the well-documented disparities among minority citizens in our state.
Each year, the BRIDGE magazine highlights change-agents of health in Arkansas. Arkansas minorities rely of the annual BRIDGE magazine to help set and reveal the agenda for public health in Arkansas each year.
