PROJECT 1:

RISE (funding provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention):

Reducing Intake of Sodium for Everyone (RISE) is a new 5-year project designed to reduce the amount of sodium consumed in schools and in emergency meal programs that primarily serve the food insecure in northwest Arkansas. UAMS is currently working with the Springdale Public Schools, the Promise Land Food Program in Springdale, Samaritan Community Center in Rogers and Springdale, and United Methodist First Church in Springdale.
