Former President Bill Clinton is in Little Rock for the Sixth Annual Health Matters Activation Summit happening at the Clinton Presidential Library. It's a two-day event happening Sunday, April 9 and Monday, April 10.
The event will be taking a look at plans to address unplanned pregnancies at community colleges and universities here in Arkansas, and assessing professional training programs to improve nutrition and physical activity.
There will be panels on increasing access to healthcare and improve healthcare philanthropy, and a final discussion will be on solutions to the opioid epidemic happening across the country. Also expected is an announcement from Harvard Medical School on new research to address some of the issues associated with addiction and dependency.
Over the past few years, the Clinton Health Matters Initiative has distributed more than 6,000 doses of addiction-treatment Naxalone, and partnered with a pharmaceutical company to make the treatment available to every high school in the country.
The Secret Service says commuters should not expect any delays, roadblocks, or closures associated with the event.
