Arkansas annually ranks near the bottom among U.S. states in overall population health status due to low health indicators including obesity and number of adults who smoke. The state also ranks among the bottom five in the number of active physicians per capita and in the number of primary care physicians. NYITCOM at A-State was established in 2016 with the mission of training physicians to help meet the growing need in this medically underserved area.
