UAMS Mindfulness Program

The UAMS Mindfulness Program was established in January 2019 under the stewardship of Dr. Puru Thapa through a grant from the UAMS Chancellor’s Circle of Excellence Fund to promote wellness in our students and residents/fellows. The goals of the Program are to 1) offer formal Mindfulness courses to UAMS students, residents/ fellows, and eventually to the rest of the UAMS community; 2) offer drop-in Guided Mindfulness sessions at various locations on campus; 3) increase awareness of the value of Mindfulness practices through presentations in various forums, workshops, and other related activities; and 4) serve as a resource on Mindfulness for the UAMS community.
