Kevin Hemphill

Kevin Hemphill

Kevin, a second year medical student, serves as the Director of Community Outreach at the 12th Street Health and Wellness Clinic (HWC). The 12th Street HWC is a student-led free clinic located in an undeserved neighborhood in Little Rock.  The clinic provides information for healthy living, preventive care focused on heart health, and consultations & screenings for chronic health conditions.

Kevin demonstrates a strong and enthusiastic commitment to both the 12th Street HWC and the CAB.


John Musser

John Musser

John Musser

John is a second year medical student in the UAMS College of Medicine.  I first spoke with him as he was driving down from Michigan to get settled in and start medical school.  I met with him regarding budgeting and student loans, and he told me about his vision for ROOTS, Rural Ophthalmology Optometry Treatment and Screening.  This non-profit partners with eye doctors to help kids get proper vision treatment.  His group has hosted several screenings beginning with an outreach in the Little Rock School District.  They provided eight pairs of glasses at no cost to the students and set up follow up care for several others.  John orchestrated a ROOTS Vision Day in August-September 2018 for a screening day.  Additionally, ROOTS hosted a summer camp to educate children about eye health. John is making a difference in children’s lives. He has accomplished these goals while attending his first year of medical school.  John has such a passion for helping people, and it was very evident to me when I first met him.  I am confident he is going to accomplish great things in healthcare.


Institutional Health Partner Award

Recognizes an institutional partner (non-community based organization) that has provided invaluable expertise, guidance, and/or support to UAMS or Arkansas Children’s Hospital Research Institute on various projects.


Arkansas Minority Health Commission

AMHC LogoThe mission of the Arkansas Minority Health Commission (AMHC) is to assure all minority Arkansans equitable access to health and health care and to seek ways to promote health and prevent diseases and conditions that are prevalent among minority populations.


UAMS Translational Research Institute

The UAMS Translational Research Institute (TRI) has had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with (AMHC). Through our participation in AMHC Health Fairs held around the state, we have had the opportunity to enroll attendees in ARresearch.org, a voluntary participant research registry. The fairs are held throughout the year and allow us to inform attendees about clinical research at UAMS.  Additionally, Director ShaRonda Love has provided letters of support for the TRI application for a Clinical and Translational Sciences Award (CTSA) from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).  The letters of support have been invaluable in demonstrating the collaboration between TRI’s research efforts throughout the state and AMHC’s mission to focus on addressing existing disparities in minority communities through education and accessibility. We are especially encouraged that this collaboration will continue in additional activities and opportunities translation activities utilizing data and outcomes into proven best practices. These opportunities would not be possible without the community access that AMHC has provided to TRI.


Arkansas Department of Health WIC Office

Arkansas WIC WIC is the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children.  Arkansas WIC is a program within the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH).  The main focus of WIC is educating families about proper nutrition for babies, young children, and expectant and new mothers.

The Center for Childhood Obesity Prevention (CCOP) investigators have benefited greatly from their relationship with the ADH WIC clinics. The staff at WIC have been exceptionally helpful to our center’s investigators by allowing them to advertise for their research studies at various clinics. They have posted and distributed flyers for several of our studies. We have seen positive results from recruiting through WIC clinics. Additionally, the WIC office agreed to write a letter of support for our investigator’s project and there is potential for a future partnership.


Benton County Drug Court

Benton CountyThe mission of the 19th Judicial District West Adult Drug Court is to allow non-violent offenders without serious records the opportunity to address their addiction in lieu of more punitive measures. The goal of the program is to provide a treatment-based program including counseling, therapeutic meetings and probationary supervision that allows clients to make positive lifestyle changes.

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) has worked collaboratively with the Benton County Drug Court (BCDC) on various projects funded by SAMHSA, BJA, and the state of Arkansas for over 13 years.  The purpose of the partnership is to enhance the treatment for substance abuse, co-occurring substance abuse and mental health, and wraparound health services offered through a Drug Court in Benton County, Arkansas. The UAMS Department of Family and Preventive Medicine’s Research and Evaluation division conducts the program evaluation for Benton County.  Through this partnership Benton County has provided invaluable opportunities to collaboratively develop trainings, interventions, and evidence based practices for vulnerable populations.  Without their support UAMS would not have been able to pilot interventions (such as HIV education and training) that are now statewide and have resulted in over a million dollars in revenue for prevention and research in the state of Arkansas.  Benton County has also been instrumental in developing trauma-informed care practices for patients that have experienced serious trauma in their lifetime.  They partnered with UAMS and U of A psychology department to develop trauma specific treatment by hosting intern-resident positions for students becoming the next generation of healthcare providers.  Benton County has also been instrumental in the implementation of trafficking screening procedures (the first in the state) in order to identify the health needs and barriers of victims of human trafficking.  Without the support, guidance, and collaboration with Benton County much of the research and evaluation conducted at UAMS regarding the health needs of Arkansas’ most vulnerable residents would not have been possible.


Community-Based Organization of the Year Award

Recognizes a community-based organization that has provided invaluable expertise, guidance and/or support to UAMS on a project.


Harmony Health Clinic

Harmony Health ClinicHarmony Health Clinic seeks to understand and serve the health and wellness needs of the medically uninsured and underserved who live in Central Arkansas, by providing access to quality medical care at no cost to these patients in a private, community-based clinic, staffed by volunteer professionals and marked by a unique atmosphere of caring, compassion, respect, dignity, and diversity.

I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Harmony Clinic since its inception over a decade ago.  Harmony serves as a source of care for the low income, uninsured patients in our community and a training site for many of our medical students, nursing students, dental residents and others.  Students are able to participate in precepted clinical care in an interprofessional ambulatory setting and the clinic provides care for patients in need.  Harmony also accepts referrals for uninsured patients from UAMS Emergency Department, Hospital and clinics thus reducing the burden of uncompensated care to our institution.  Finally, Harmony has supported a number of small research and clinical projects developed by our students and faculty (such as a health coaching clinic).  Harmony has been a valuable partner in training our learners and helping to better care for the Central Arkansas community.


Our House

Our HouseOur House provides a comprehensive array of services to equip homeless and near-homeless individuals and families with the skills, resources, and confidence to overcome homelessness permanently.

For the past year Our House staff have supported a number of projects I have led or co-led at UAMS. The first was a PCORI funded project to identify the health and social needs of pregnant women facing housing insecurity and their children. Our House assisted with recruitment of participants to be interviewed and to serve on the Homeless Infant Task force; presented about their resources at a project event; and provided meeting space for the project. Because of their work on this initial project around pregnancy and homelessness, Cindy Crone another UAMS employee partnered with Our House on a SAMHSA grant to address the needs of women facing housing insecurity who are pregnant or with small children who are dealing with mental health disorders and/or substance abuse. This 5-year project was recently funded and Our House is the leading community organizations on the project. Lastly, Our House Executive Director, Ben Goodwin shared his knowledge and experience about non-profits and identifying persons to serve on a board of directors. This was part of another PCORI funded project “The development of the Faith-Academic Initiatives for Transforming Health (FAITH) Network.” It has been a pleasure working alongside Our House staff and I am looking forward to a long-term partnership.


ROOTS – Rural Ophthalmology Optometry Treatment and Screening

Tree RootsRural Ophthalmology Optometry Treatment and Screening (ROOTS), founded by medical student John Musser, aims to provide an outreach for interdisciplinary collaboration between ophthalmic technician students, medical students, community ophthalmologists/optometrists, and university faculty to improve the ophthalmic health of those living in underserved rural areas.

The Center for Diversity Affairs (CDA) has partnered with ROOTS by organizing vision screenings. We also co-facilitated a 2-day STEM experience at the Our House Foundation for grade school children. In August 2018, through the organization’s partnerships, ROOTS, tested nearly 500 kids for their vision.

ROOTS brought to our attention the incredible number of children who fail eye exams. Our new knowledge, allows the CDA other opportunities to assist our target populations.


Coalition for Tobacco Free Arkansas

Tobacco Free ArkansasThe Coalition for a Tobacco Free Arkansas (CTFA) is a network of statewide organizations with a shared mission to prevent the use of tobacco in our state. CTFA has worked since its inception in January 1992 to improve the health of Arkansans by waging a grassroots campaign to increase public awareness of the negative effects of tobacco use.

The CTFA’s support in trying to prevent the use of tobacco in Arkansas has been tremendous by helping spread awareness about secondhand smoke exposure. Their participation in our Center for the Study of Tobacco has been integral to our research study, F.R.E.S.H (Families Rising to Enforce Smoke-free Homes).


Holman Heritage Community Center

Holman Heritage Community CenterFor the past eight years, Mr. Calvin Criner, Executive Director of the Holman Heritage Community Center, has hosted UAMS College of Public Health doctoral students for community visits in Stuttgart, Arkansas as a part of our course on community-based program design. Mr. Criner was the visionary force behind establishment of the Holman Heritage Community Center which was formerly the Holman School serving African American students in Stuttgart until it was closed in 1970. He inspired the school’s alumni to join him in 1996 in buying back the building and working to restore it through hard work and fundraising to serve as an educational, civic, recreational, and business development resource for their community. Every 3rd and 5th Sunday of the month, Holman hosts a public dinner attended by individuals from across Stuttgart to share fellowship and help to support the restoration and service activities of the center. Each year Mr. Criner serves as a community guide for our class on a windshield survey/tour of Stuttgart. By transparently sharing his extensive knowledge of the historical, geographic, and political landscape of his hometown, we have learned how complex and deeply rooted the causes of health disparities can be. Mr. Criner’s commitment to bridging the racial divide in his community is an inspiring model for all of us and even though he may view his contribution to our educational mission as a small one, it is without fail the single most memorable exercise our students write about every year in giving us feedback on the course.


Community Advisory Board of the Year Award

Recognizes a community advisory board that has provided invaluable expertise, guidance and/or support to UAMS on a project.


Arkansas Prevention Research Center Community Advisory Board

COPH logoThe Arkansas Prevention Research Center’s Community Committee was constituted in 2014 to advise the Center overall and, most importantly, to advise us with regard to the research project being completed in Desha County.  The committee, comprising community members from various sectors within Dumas and McGehee, was critically important in our success in the research project.  They reviewed materials and gave input; they gave advice about communication and recruitment strategies; they suggested venues for recruiting participants and, when we were lagging behind our goals, they made phone calls and helped us schedule events, lending their credibility and status in the community to the research project.  The Community Committee helped us identify additional communities to expand our recruitment territory and suggested community residents from that area (Chicot County) to serve on the Committee.  Because of their sage advice and partnership, the PRC’s research project exceeded its recruitment goals. We could not have done it without them.


12th Street Health and Wellness Clinic Community Advisory Board

12th Street Health CenterSince October of 2016, I have served as the facilitator for the 12th Street Health & Wellness Center’s (HWC) Community Advisory Board (CAB).  The 12th HWC is a student led free health clinic located in an undeserved community.  In my time with the CAB, I have witnessed the valuable input and participation of the CAB members in the life of the clinic.

Members of the 12th Street CAB represent various groups and interests of the midtown Little Rock area.  They include local residents, members of local churches, citizen groups, non-profit organizations, and business leaders.  This group of community members provides valuable insight used to guide the development and work of the UAMS 12th Street HWC.

Over the years, the CAB has advertised the clinic’s services, made recommendation on services needed by area residents, and helped develop the clinic’s first patient satisfaction survey.  In the past year the CAB has begun collecting food for the clinic’s food pantry at its meetings.  The food is then given free of charge to the clinic’s patients.  The CAB also recently gave its’ consent for the clinic to be used for work with homeless pregnant mothers.  Individually, members of the CAB often volunteer on clinic nights assisting in different activities.

The 12th Street HWC CAB is a vital and respected component of the clinic.  It has been a significant contributor to the success of the clinic.  The CAB’s efforts have helped to make sure the clinic is no longer just another building in the community, but a valuable community asset.


Phillips and Jefferson Counties Faith Task Force

Faith Task ForceThe Faith Task Forces of Phillips and Jefferson counties consist of local clergy, parishioners, and community leaders who connect faith and health to improve the health of diverse congregations and the broader Delta community.

The Faith Task Force has been involved in collaborative research with the majority of Dr. Yeary’s research projects since 2005. They have been essential in assessing the community issues to be addressed, in developing appropriate interventions, pilot testing evaluation instruments, implementing interventions, and in disseminating project results. Beneficial outcomes have included over 10 million dollars of federal and local funding to address health disparities in obesity, nutrition, physical activity, cancer prevention, and depression in the Arkansas Delta; 11 publications with community co-authorships; and 14 presentations at national conferences.

The partnership co-developed the research agenda for addressing health disparities through behavioral interventions and were essential in creating community salient interventions and recruiting participants. The  collaborative partnership between Dr. Yeary and the Faith Task Force has spanned nearly 15 years and produced several research projects, many of which are ongoing (e.g. REJOICE, THRIVE, WORD).

The Faith Task Force has worked tirelessly for nearly 15 years in community-based participatory research to address the needs of the Arkansas community. In the early years, the organization members worked without compensation because of their passion to improve the health of their communities. They have made a significant impact in the health of Arkansas through their large body of work through grants received and implemented, and dissemination of knowledge through presentation and publications that can be applied to other underserved communities.


Wise Quality Improvement Panel  

Wise LogoThe Wise Quality Improvement Panel was created to engage stakeholders to develop implementation support strategies for Head Start classes adopting a nutrition curriculum, WISE: We Inspire Smart Eating.  WISE models, teaches, and promotes healthy food attitudes in programs that serve children preschool to elementary. This curriculum was developed in the Research and Evaluation Division of the UAMS Department of Family and Preventive Medicine.  The curriculum is currently in use in Head Start facilities throughout the state of Arkansas along with limited use in Louisiana.

 


Chancellor’s Community Research Partner Award

Recognizes an outstanding community-based organization that has participated in health research.


Better Community Development, Inc.

BCDInc LogoUAMS is partnering with Better Community Development, Inc. (BCD)  in a 3-year SAMHSA-funded project to decrease HIV and Viral Hepatitis transmission and improve health outcomes among 270 high risk, low income, adult African American  women in treatment for Substance Use Disorder in Pulaski County, AR.  We plan to achieve project goals by inserting HIV/VH education and testing and other evidence-based, gender-specific, culturally responsive, and trauma informed services into an existing women’s SUD treatment program to increase client engagement and retention, knowledge, and self-care behaviors to prevent HIV/VH and improve overall health and well-being.

BCD has leadership and direct services responsibilities with the project. A collaborative UAMS-BCD Leadership Team guides implementation, monitoring, and data-driven improvements for 5 project-initiated evidence based interventions (EBIs): Motivational Interviewing, Matrix for Women, Seeking Safety, Healthy Love, and a Community Health Worker (CHW). CHW outreach helps the UAMS data collector achieve a near 80% 6-month follow-up rate.  BCD staff conduct project-initiated health screenings at intake.  To “normalize” HIV/VH testing, staff also screen for diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and tobacco use-disorders common among African American women with SUD.  The CHW coordinates primary care and preventive health referrals.  Beneficial Outcomes are demonstrated for clients, BCD, and UAMS.

Six-month client follow-up data analyzed half-way through the project showed significant changes in HIV risks. BCD has increased their capacity to deliver EBIs and engage in routine quality improvement activities.  BCD and UAMS staff presented a ‘virtual poster session’, Passion Project’s Implementation of Healthy Love Curriculum, in June, 2018, at SAMHSA’s national HIV conference.  In addition to safer sex practices, clients also show significant improvements in other indicators of well-being (abstinence from alcohol/drugs, employment, stable housing), and significant decreases in arrests and symptoms of depression or anxiety.  These outcomes were presented by BCD staff in a poster session in March, 2018 at a United Methodist Church Abundant Health Day conference in Atlanta, GA.

Passion Project FlyerBCD is in their fourth decade serving African American clients and walking alongside persons with low-incomes and significant health and social risks. Their reputation for providing “real help” is invaluable in bringing the population of focus to the project and in assisting UAMS researchers in gaining clients’ trust. Particular to this project, BCD was among the first community based organizations in Arkansas to enter the HIV arena.  They were the first to provide outreach and support to prevent HIV transmission and to serve African Americans living with HIV/AIDS.  This was in the ’80s when HIV/AIDS were new diagnoses and fear, not support, was too often the public response.  Working with Dr. Joycelyn Elders and others, BCD helped pave the way for those seeking to serve this population, including this UAMS project team.  The importance of assisting UAMS staff in gaining the trust of clients and other community partners cannot be overstated.  BCD’s guidance helps keep us culturally informed and acceptable to the clients we serve together.  Team discussions are open, honest, and sometimes uncomfortable, but always respectful. Working together, UAMS and BCD are learning new and effective strategies for engaging clients in self-care to effect optimal health and well-being. As far as a legacy, BCD clients, staff, and leadership requested HIV/VH prevention services be expanded to male clients.  Two recent funding requests–one by the project coordinator (UAMS-DFPM) and one by BCD’s on-site project manager–were funded by ADH using CDC funds to allow this expansion and continued partnership.

BCD has been serving high risk, low income Arkansans for 37 years.  UAMS colleagues from the COPH and COM-DFPM have collaborated with BCD for 25 of those years. Each organization recognizes and values the benefits of collaboration in improving community health and well-being.  Through our collaboration, we are increasing the skills of service providers and researchers. Our mutually beneficial partnership has resulted in improved health and social outcomes among community members experiencing the greatest health disparities and some of the most complex and costly disorders. BCD has demonstrated a long-term commitment to improving the lives and health of vulnerable residents and is willing and capable to lead sometimes and follow sometimes.  BCD employs compassionate teachers and learners, many of whom share a lived experience with their clients and are able to facilitate client trust of UAMS researchers. BCD staff are learning to implement and value EBIs. UAMS researchers are learning how to better understand and engage with a high risk client population in order to improve health and health care.  We expect this partnership to continue and to flourish in ways yet unknown.
