Issues That Matter: Still Here - The State Of The Pandemic In Arkansas


One year into the coronavirus pandemic, a lot has changed. So what's different, and how are we dealing with it? 

In the latest Issues That Matter forum, we ask our panelists how Arkansas has weathered COVID-19, and what living in this new normal looks like. 

Panelists include: 

  • Mark Williams, Ph.D - Dean, Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
  • Sheldon Riklon, M.D. - Peter O. Kohler, M.D. Endowed Chair in Health Disparities; associate professor, UAMS College of Medicine Department of Family and Preventive Medicine
  • Loretta Alexander, MHSA - Health Policy Director, Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families
  • Rep. Jack Ladyman - Chair, Arkansas House Public Health, Welfare and Labor Committee

This series is presented by the Central Arkansas Library System, the League of Women Voters of Pulaski County, and KUAR FM 89.1. This forum was recorded on Zoom Feb. 25, 2021, and has been edited for time and clarity. 
This program will be broadcast on Monday, March 8 at 7:30 p.m., and again on Wednesday, March 10 at the same time. Register for our next forum, Issues That Matter: The Need To Read, on the Central Arkansas Library System's website
