This short video describes the value of Community Health Centers (CHCs) to residents of Arkansas. It begins by explaining the declining economic system that has plagued the state. Next, the narrator describes how many people in Arkansas have poor access to health care, how they have to travel more than twenty five miles for services, and how dental and mental health care services in the state are inadequate. The video goes on to summarize the critical issues facing the success of CHCs in Arkansas, including lack of funding, lack of health care providers, and delayed technology adoption. The video concludes with an emphasis on the lifeline provided through the CHCs, and the instrumental role of CHCs in creating healthy, happy and productive communities.
