The Arkansas Minority Health Commission (AMHC) is proud to announce its first round of sponsorship recipients for 2019. Fourteen organizations will receive funding from the AMHC to assist in the execution of health events hosted from Jan. 1 to June 15.
The AMHC recognizes that improving minority health in Arkansas, and the nation, requires collaboration. For this reason, the agency often teams up with other organizations, such as schools, community and faith-based groups, to address health problems that affect minorities.
To help aid in the development of new and innovative approaches to health promotion and disease prevention in minority communities, the AMHC regularly offers sponsorships through a competitive application process.
“I am happy to continue partnerships that support Arkansas communities as well as develop new partners and reach all four corners of the state,” said ShaRhonda Love, director of the AMHC.
The newest sponsorship recipients are as follows:
- 12th Street Health and Wellness Center
- Alzheimer’s Association
- Arkansas Cancer Coalition
- Arkansas Martin Luther King Commission

The Arkansas Minority Health Commission works to assure that all minority Arkansans have equitable access to preventive health care and seeks ways to promote health and prevent diseases and conditions that are prevalent among minority populations.
