North Little Rock cardiologist Dr. Prabhat Hebbar recently illustrated his commitment to improving health care in this community and our state by joining the Arkansas Medical Society. He practices at St. Vincent Heart Clinic North.

"As a society member, Dr. Hebbar is part of a statewide network of over 4,000 Arkansas physicians, residents and medical students, dedicated to protecting the interests of their patients and improving the health of Arkansans," said Society President, Omar Atiq, MD, of Pine Bluff.

Some of the society’s most recent advocacy efforts include supporting the passage of the "Private Option" to extend private health insurance coverage to working families.

The Arkansas Medical Society is a voluntary professional association, established in 1875.
