The building is located on the corner of 12th and Cedar street. (Map & Directions)

How can I benefit from the HWC?

The HWC is focused on preventative care, particularly heart health, as well as providing consultations for chronic health conditions and healthy living. Under the supervision of licensed health care professionals, UAMS students provide health and wellness services, including disease and medication management, basic dental screenings, health screenings, education, and immunizations for the community.

What services does the HWC offer and when are they available?

Some services will be regularly scheduled throughout the week, like blood pressure readings and personalized medication education. Specialized events, like nutrition classes or basic dental care for kids, will be announced as programs are scheduled.

What services are NOT available at the HWC?

Students under supervision will not be able to dispense medications. We do have limited prescription writing ability for help with some chronic medical conditions. No prescriptions for narcotics are available. For all serious medical urgencies, visitors will be referred to your nearest emergency room.

Who can receive the services offered by the HWC?

People of all ages are welcome at the HWC.

Will I be charged for any services provided?

No, all services are provided free of charge in order to benefit the community and provide an educational experience for UAMS students.

Do I make an appointment?

No appointment is needed at this time; however, due to increased demand we limit the number of walk-in visits each night. It is best to call the Center first to make an appointment if possible.
