KIDS FIRST is Arkansas’ first pediatric daily treatment program for children ages birth to 5 with special health care needs. Based at the UAMS Department of Pediatrics in the College of Medicine, KIDS FIRST offers a wide array of services. From an initial 50 children at the Little Rock site to more than 700 in 11 clinics around the state, KIDS FIRST has grown and evolved into the program of excellence operated today. The clinics are in Fort Smith, Little Rock, Lowell, Magnolia, Morrilton, Mountain View, Newport, Pine Bluff, Pocahontas, Searcy and Warren.

UAMS is the state’s only comprehensive academic health center, with colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Health Related Professions and Public Health; a graduate school; a hospital; a statewide network of regional centers; and seven institutes: the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, the Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute, the Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy, the Harvey & Bernice Jones Eye Institute, the Psychiatric Research Institute, the Donald W.
