Arkansas Minority Health Commission’s website gets makeover

Posted: January 18, 2019

It is with immense pleasure that the Arkansas Minority Health Commission (AMHC) announces today the launch of its newly revitalized website.

With a sleeker look, yet simple layout, aligns with the goal of the agency, which is to be a catalyst in bridging the gap in the health status of minority and majority populations in Arkansas. The AMHC seeks to accomplish this by addressing disparities within minority communities, educating these communities on healthier lifestyles, promoting awareness of services and accessibility within the health care system, and making recommendations to relevant agencies, the governor and the state legislature.

"We are so excited about our new website launch and the experience it offers our visitors as we continue to advance as an agency,” said ShaRhonda Love, director of the AMHC.

The AMHC’s website not only has a new look, but it is also easy to use and is web accessible, which ensures that all users have equal access to the site’s information and functionality. In addition, essential information can be found swiftly using the homepage features, including the slideshow that details the agency’s initiatives, as well as buttons labeled with descriptive icons that can take visitors from the volunteer form to scheduling the agency’s soon-to-come Mobile Health Unit.

The AMHC website will be updated on a regular basis with upcoming events, monthly health topics, funding opportunities, press releases, publications and tweets. Visitors are encouraged to explore the website and subscribe to the email listserv for frequent updates at
