H2O and GO

In Washington and Benton counties, 31% of children are overweight and obese under guidelines set forth by the CDC. That’s enough to fill a school bus 500 times. Proper hydration is one way to help kids maintain a healthy weight. The American Heart Association is installing 45 H2O and GO water bottle-filling stations in schools over the next 3 years. H2O and GO is a joint effort with Healthy Active Arkansas.

Let's Talk Numbers

The damage to your blood vessels from undetected or uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to heart attack, stroke, heart failure and other serious health threats.

Fighting For The Health Of Newborns

Congenital heart defects are the top killer of newborns with birth defects. We educated the local community on the need for a simple, non-invasive screening that could prevent these deaths. With a groundswell of support, a state law was passed in 2013 that makes this screening a requirement for all Arkansas hospitals. By working to protect the heart of every child born in Northwest Arkansas, we help the youngest members of our community live a healthy and long life.
