Our Mission

Improve health and promote the well-being of individuals, families, and communities in Arkansas through education, research and service.

We believe that, at its core, public health is about social justice – what’s best for all of us, not just a few. We define “health” broadly, to include all those things which allow individuals, families, and communities to become healthier.
