Covering the state: The model will be implemented at 36 clinics and health centers across Arkansas, from FQHCs to UAMS. Additionally, a planning council will be established to make these resources available to other primary clinics throughout the state.

Draft + Table to Open its Doors Later This Month in Former Cregeen's Space
Draft + Table, a new restaurant at the corner of Broadway and Main Streets in North Little Rock, is set to open this month and bring their take on fine dining to Argenta.
Design goals: The 3,000 square foot space was taken down to the studs and given a new life by Shine Interior Design Studio. Refinishing the mahogany bar from Dublin was a top priority for retaining a bit of Cregeen's roots.
Tastes of America: The menu encompasses the flavours of a melting pot of cultures, with a focus on sandwiches. From classic Italian beef to a fried egg and bologna sandwich, you'll feel like you're touring the country in taste.
