Flashback Friday with the UAMS Library!

April is Child Abuse awareness month, thanks to Charles Hildreth white for his years of service to the children of Arkansas!

One image in a collection of photographs of Charles Hildreth White, M.S.W ca1958-2010. Charles Hildreth White, M.S.W. worked at UAMS from 1958 until his retirement in 2010. He joined UAMS after completing his masters degree in social work from the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. Mr. White also held a bachelors degree from Philander Smith College (1956) where he later served as an associate professor in the Dept. of Sociology. At the time he came to UAMS, there were only four buildings on the campus and Mr. White was one of only three African-Americans on the professional staff. As a social worker at UAMS, Mr. White investigated child abuse cases and helped coordinate care with local agencies for indigent or uninsured patients with serious health problems such as asthma or heart disease. In 1972, he was named the Director of Social Services and two years later, Chancellor James Dennis appointed him Director of the Office of Human Relations. In that capacity, Mr. White handled formal employee grievances as well as implementation of Affirmative Action and equal opportunity programs. In 2003, he was promoted to Assistant Vice Chancellor for Employee Relations.

Happy St. Patrick's Day from the UAMS Library! Don't count on luck, use Evidence Based Practice!

The UAMS Library has a resource guide focused on Evidence Based Practice and Medicine. Evidence Based Practice and Evidence Based Medicine share the same base; that the best patient care involves the best evidence, clinical judgment, and patient preferences. How they approach patient care is slightly different.

In 1918, the medical school changed its name to the University of Arkansas School of Medicine.
