LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) _ The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health has received $40,000 from the Mexican Consulate in Little Rock to continue a partnership that began in 2010.
Consul David Preciado presented the check Friday to UAMS Chancellor Dr. Dan Rahn to support the Ventanilla de Salud, or Health Window Program. The program includes support from the Mexican government for UAMS to conduct education and health screenings for Mexicans in Arkansas.
The funding provides health education, screenings and referrals to health care providers for more than 30,000 visitors to the consulate each year.
