‘Save the Date’ for Veterans Awareness Month Activities

November is Veterans Awareness Month at UAMS. During this month, we honor the service, sacrifice and commitment of UAMS veteran, active duty, reserve and guard employees.

The month includes various activities, such as our Veterans Recognition Breakfast, from 6:45 – 8:15 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 7.

Our veteran’s awareness committee also collects items and monetary donations to purchase care packages for veteran residents at St. Francis Transitional Housing as well as Fort Roots.  The committee also serves lunch to residents at St. Francis on Veterans Day.

Veteran agencies and organizations are also encouraged to attend our Veteran Education and Benefit Fair, which is held concurrently with the UAMS Employee Benefit Fair. This year’s fair will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 19.

For more information, please contact Odette Woods at or (501) 296-1076.
