Who we are

The Arkansas Heart Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization started in 2015 by Dr. Bruce Murphy, CEO of Arkansas Heart Hospital. In January 2018, Dr. Murphy and the foundation’s board of directors made the strategic decision to focus solely on helping Arkansas youth learn how to plan for health in their lives. Our foundation is now known as Champions For Health.
