To the Editor,
Our community is about to lose one or our best resources. The Dr. Dan J. Hawkins Community Health Resource Center located at the North Arkansas College Center Campus is about to close. It houses the Susan G Komen Grant, Prescription Assistance Program, Community Support Groups, and resources for teachers and nurses, help with the affordable care act, and the beginning of the Oxford House. A smaller satellite exists at North Arkansas Regional Medical Center on the first floor of the old tower. We will forever be grateful to Dr. Dan J. Hawkins for his vision of an agency dedicated to helping our community find ways to get the assistance needed to live a better life. It has been a pleasure and honor to have volunteered for this purpose.
