STAR.Health Local & State Partnerships  

Two local groups have played a special partnership role in carrying out the STAR.Health initiatives, the Hometown Health Improvement committees, and Delta ACCESS, Inc ., a local nonprofit organization with a commitment to improving health access.  Arkansas Department of Health, Arkansas Minority Health Commission, Delta ACCESS, Inc., Arkansas Community Foundation and March of Dimes are the funding partners. Other important local partners are Daughters of Charity Clinics in Gould and Dumas, AR, the Mainline CHC, the Delta Area Hospital Network, and the Delta AHEC-South of UAMS. Local physicians in these three counties have been generous in their support of STAR.Health and its activities. Other organizations include the UA Cooperative Extension Service, the Arkansas Department of Education and its five local school districts, the Arkansas Department of Human Services and the Arkansas Department of Workforce Services.
