The center is a student-led, inter-professional center which provides services from the UAMS Colleges of Health Professions, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, and the Graduate School. The center provides information for healthy living, preventive care focused on heart health, and consultations and screenings for chronic health conditions.
The UAMS Physician Assistant Program is very involved with the 12th Street Center and all students are required to rotate through the center a couple of times a semester.
"12th Street Health and Wellness Center exemplifies the PA profession through serving patients in underserved communities. It is not only a place to gain experience and forge inter-professional friendships, but it also reinforces why I chose to become a Physician Assistant."
Samantha Strong, PA-S
