Pat Walker Health Center joins many in our community and across the country in expressing our grief, sorrow, and compassion to everyone who has been impacted by the race-based tragedies across our nation. The deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and George Floyd are the latest tragedies in a longstanding and entrenched history of systemic injustice that we strongly condemn. 

Racism and discrimination is an ongoing public health crisis. As health and medical professionals, we must work to dismantle systems of racial inequalities by addressing it directly in our educational programs, our medical and health services, and our engagement.

While these tragedies can be traumatizing for us all, we know that the impact is greater among our Black and African-American community. We see you, we stand with you, and are here to support you if you want or need to talk. 

PWHC Medical Clinics and Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) are available if you need support. Mental health services are available 24/7 by phone at 479-575-5276. Additional resources can also be found here.
