Welcome to the Center for Pacific Islander Health at UAMS Northwest, a multi-disciplinary center focusing on research, community programs, training, and policy. We work with Pacific Islander communities in the United States, the US territories of American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands, and the US-affiliated Compact of Free Association nations of the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau.
