Who We Are

Our Funders & Partners

We collaborate with representatives from education, workforce, economic development, public agencies, and private industry to help form and implement regional solutions to healthcare challenges.

"ARHP is now synonymous with driving rural health innovation and change across rural Arkansas. As our goals to improve health and healthcare in Arkansas align, UAMS proudly built upon its long-term alliance with this dynamic organization in 2022, collaborating on several workforce initiatives. We look forward to strengthening the rural health landscape together through expanded telehealth, healthcare provider education and training programs, and exciting, new projects.”
