ACHI will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a Dec. 3 event at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock, in partnership with the Clinton School of Public Service. The program will feature a conversation between former Arkansas Govs. Mike Huckabee and Mike Beebe, a welcome by current Gov. Asa Hutchinson, and the presentation of Dr. Tom Bruce Arkansas Health Impact Awards to Dr. Kent Westbrook and Ben E. Owens Sr.

 

Former Arkansas Govs. Mike Huckabee and Mike Beebe will engage in a discussion on health and health care in a program celebrating the Arkansas Center for Health Improvement’s 20th anniversary.

“Celebrating 20 Years of the Arkansas Center for Health Improvement: A Healthcare Discussion with Former Governors Mike Huckabee and Mike Beebe,” hosted by ACHI in partnership with the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service, will be Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. in the Wally Allen Ballroom at the Statehouse Convention Center, 101 W. Markham St., Little Rock.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson is scheduled to welcome the former governors, so the evening will include a rare gathering of Arkansas’s three most recent governors on one stage.

The program will be free and open to the public. Reserve your seats by emailing publicprograms@clintonschool.uasys.edu or by calling (501) 683-5239. A live stream of the program can also be watched online.

The evening’s activities also will include the presentation of the Dr. Tom Bruce Arkansas Health Impact Award to two people who have had a positive impact on the health of Arkansans through their service and leadership, Dr. Kent Westbrook and Ben E. Owens Sr.

The Dr. Tom Bruce Arkansas Health Impact Award honors individuals who embody the late Dr. Tom Bruce’s lifetime of service by demonstrating courageous leadership and a sustained record as a catalyst for improving the health of all Arkansans, and who exemplify the core values of ACHI: trust, commitment, innovation, and initiative.
