UAMS, the only academic medical center in Arkansas, contains Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Health Related Professions, and Public Health. UAMS is home to the Arkansas Cancer Research Center (ACRC), the Jones Eye Institute, the Myeloma Institute, the Reynolds Institute on Aging, and the Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute.
Patients and professionals are attracted to UAMS from all over the world for a variety of reasons:
- world-class medical care
- comprehensive programs
- professional staff and volunteers, and supportive community
- futuristic vision and development program to support goals
Firsthand experience with the Myeloma Institute while my husband was undergoing cancer treatment led me to the UAMS Pool & Water Wellness Program. Throughout my life, swimming had always been my primary source of exercise and relaxation. During a physically and emotionally stressful yearlong odyssey at UAMS, water therapy and friends were key to survival and support away from home.
