Government Relations

What is "Government Relations" at Arkansas Children's?

Arkansas Children’s, like most health care providers, is influenced greatly by local, state and federal health care policies. From local safety laws to state health standards, to federal organ transplant guidelines, government plays a major role in how Arkansas Children’s serves its patients. Because of this, the Government Relations office that is responsible for researching, monitoring and, when needed, supporting worthy legislation for the good of Arkansas Children's as well as the children of Arkansas.

As part of this effort, Government Relations has started an on-going grassroots advocacy program to help support issues important to us. Elected representatives do care what their constituents think and how their votes affect their district, but many times healthcare needs for children go unheard because kids do not vote and lack a political voice. Join our grassroots organization to support and participate in this advocacy effort on behalf of Arkansas’ youth and our organization. Help us build for the future by developing relationships and avenues of communication with your elected officials. Your voice can make a difference.
