We’re so proud to recognize 70 “Champions of Health Care” in this month’s issue, as nominated by readers of Arkansas Money & Politics. We’re honoring both people and institutions for the great work they do in keeping us all safe, especially in these trying times.
From hospitals to surgeons to nurse practitioners and even volunteers, we recognize five “Champions” in 14 categories. Those who enter the health care field are choosing to serve, and over the past six months, they’ve served on the frontlines of the war against the pandemic.
One of the categories is “Innovation in Health Care,” and inside we shine a light on some of the institutions in Arkansas working to advance technology in the industry. We also take a look at the rise of telemedicine, its use hastened by the virus as providers and patients look for ways to limit contact.
As always, thank you for reading. Please share any comments or story ideas with me at [email protected].
