LAAlogoLegal Aid of Arkansas (LAA) and Lee County Cooperative Clinic (LCCC) have formed the Lee County Medical-Legal Partnership (LCMLP), a medical-legal collaborative based at LCCC. The initial term of the partnership starts on March 1, 2011 and continues until February 29, 2012. It is the intent of the parties to continue the partnership after the initial term if it is mutually agreed that clients are receiving a positive benefit from the collaboration and human, fiscal, and financial resources are available. The purpose of the LCMLP will be to promote health and family well being using an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, lawyers to address the negative impact of social determinants on health and eliminate barriers to health care in order to help people meet their basic needs and stay healthy.

ADHArkansas Department of Health Mission Statement – To protect and improve the health and well-being of all Arkansans.

Vision Statement – Optimal health for all Arkansans to achieve maximum personal, economic and social impact.

What is public health? One definition – from a 1988 report by the Institute of Medicine’s “The Future of Public Health” – is this: “Public health is the science and the art of preventing disease, prolonging life, and organizing community efforts to do the following: keep the environment clean, control communicable infections, educate individuals in personal hygiene (like hand washing for example), organize medical and nursing services for the early diagnosis and treatment of disease, and develop the social machinery to ensure everyone a healthy standard of living.”

To say that another way, public health is everything the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) does to protect and improve the health and well-being of all Arkansans – more than 100 services provided statewide by public health professionals to assure that your water is safe, your children have their immunizations, your restaurants are safe and your birth certificate is correct – to name just a few.

A County Health Officer, nominated by the County Judge and appointed by the State Board of Health, serves in each of Arkansas’ 75 counties. The County Health Officer serves as a key public health representative in the local community, promoting the use of local health unit services, advocating for public health policy initiatives with local and state policy makers, and providing assistance to local public health education and promotion initiatives. The County Health Officer also aids and assists the State Board of Health and collaborates with the State Health Officer and the Department of Health in county emergency preparedness response and planning including implementing orders of the State Health Officer if isolation, quarantine, or emergency legal measures are required.  The County Health Officer participates in the development and review of local emergency plans and serves as a local spokesperson to the media, general public, and medical community in the event of a public health emergency.
