LITTLE ROCK– The University of Arkansas System Board of Trustees, in a regularly scheduled meeting, ratified the appointment of Angie Walker to the University of Arkansas Cossatot Board of Visitors.
Born and raised in Northeast Arkansas, Angie Walker is a 1997 graduate of Remington College in Little Rock, Arkansas with an associate degree in Legal Studies.
In 2003, she and her husband Dr. Randy Walker relocated to De Queen to establish Walker Family Practice Clinic to care for the residents of Sevier County. The Walkers employ UA Cossatot graduates as nursing staff.
Since then, Walker has led numerous healthcare quality improvement projects for the state. Some of these projects include the Medicare Care Management Program, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease program, and Chronic Kidney Disease program with the Arkansas Foundation for Medical Care; the Arkansas Chronic Illness Collaborative and Arkansas Clinic Transformation with the Arkansas Department of Health; and the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.
Walker also serves as an active board member for the First State Bank of De Queen, the Industrial Park Board, and Aledade. She is also a Sevier County Justice of the Peace, 6th District.
“We are honored to have Angie serve on our Board of Visitors. She brings a rich knowledge of economic development and healthcare to our board, and she cares deeply about our area and the educational attainment of our citizens,” said UA Cossatot Chancellor Steve Cole.
Walker will serve on the Board of Visitors until June 30, 2019, and will represent Sevier County.
