Do you know someone who has made a positive and lasting impact on the health of Arkansans? We are currently accepting nominations for the 2024 Dr. Tom Bruce Arkansas Health Impact Award.

The ACHI Health Policy Board honors individuals each year who embody Dr. Tom Bruce’s lifetime of service by demonstrating courageous leadership, sustaining records as catalysts for improving the health of all Arkansans, and exemplifying the core values of ACHI: trust, commitment, innovation, and initiative.

Jon Swanson, who served as Metropolitan Emergency Medical Services’ (MEMS) executive director for 23 years, was honored in 2022. Dr. Betty Lowe, who helped to develop Arkansas Children’s Hospital into a national recognized center, was also honored in memoriam in 2022.
