AMHC to host forum

Personal health awareness and advocacy are key to the overall health of individuals. Each quarter, the Arkansas Minority Health Commission (AMHC) hosts public forums in different cities around the state to promote health awareness and to assess the needs of the community. On Friday, July 27, the AMHC, in partnership with the Arkansas County Partners in Health, the Arkansas County Health Unit, and Baptist Health Medical Center of Stuttgart, will host a public forum on the Affordable Care Act and Local Health Needs.

The AMHC Public forum will be held at the Grand Prairie Center at 2709 Highway 165 South in Stuttgart from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The forum will be facilitated by AMHC Commissioners from across the state. Free dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m.

Local public officials and legislators have been invited to attend. A special presentation will be given by Dr. Eduardo Ochoa, UAMS, on the Affordable Care Act. Entertainment will be provided by Rev. T.W. Scott and the Singing Rev’s of Pine Bluff, along with Stuttgart’s own Jeremy Prine.

In addition, the faith-based organization with the highest attendance at the Grand Prairie Health and Wellness Expo held in June will be announced and presented with 20 Wild River Country tickets.
