LITTLE ROCK â€” The Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center at Arkansas Children's Hospital will have a new director for the first time in nearly 20 years.
The hospital says Sean Adams will serve as the center's director beginning in October. He'll also be professor and chief of the Division of Developmental Nutrition at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
Adams is now an associate professor at the University of California, Davis, and is a research leader with the USDA's Western Human Nutrition Research Center.
LITTLE ROCK â€” Democratic gubernatorial nominee Mike Ross on Tuesday proposed boosting annual state funding for domestic violence, child abuse and parole programs by $10 million, as he unveiled a plan aimed at addressing public safety in Arkansas.
The ex-congressman detailed his proposals less than two weeks after Arkansas lawmakers approved increased funding to ease an influx of state prisoners crowding local jails. Republican rival Asa Hutchinson detailed a plan to address crime and prison overcrowding earlier this summer.
