TheArkansas Department of Health, the Arkansas Center for Health Improvement, the ArkansasCoalition for Obesity Prevention, the Arkansas Minority Health Commission, Baptist Health, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and WinthropRockefeller Institute are just a few of the organizations that have begun working on implementing the plan.
