UAMS Midsouth Summit Black Expo

The Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences hosted the Seventh Annual Midsouth Summit Black Expo on Saturday, February 26, 2001 at the Clear Channel Metroplex in Little Rock from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. A program with dinner was hosted the night before.

The annual event honors black history month and raises awareness on the disparate effects of cancer and general health on the black community.

Dr. Ronda Henry-Tillman and Dr. Peter Immanuel of UAMS highlighted programs that demonstrate evidence based interventions for minority and underserved populations in Arkansas, and also stressed the need for continued support of these programs, at the reception on Friday evening.

Saturday featured a bevy of exhibitors and health groups marketing their programs, goods and services to all in attendance, while crowds were entertained by sorority step performances, gospel choirs, hip hop acts, and fashion shows.
