Arkansas has one of the highest rates of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, in the country, with the condition affecting nearly 15% of our population. Though ADHD can present significant hurdles for those with the condition, many of them live productive, healthy lives through a variety of treatment options.
An individual is diagnosed with ADHD when he or she displays at least six out of the nine (five out of nine for individuals 17 and older) symptoms of either inattention type ADHD or hyperactivity-impulsivity type ADHD over a period of six months or longer within at least two settings, such as home and school/work.

A healthier Arkansas begins with healthier children. At Baptist Health, we believe the ongoing effort to plant gardens at schools will play an important role in educating the next generation about a nutritious diet – something we’ve seen evidence of in Conway public elementary schools.
In 2017, Conway Schools was awarded a USDA Farm to School Grant to build gardens at the district’s elementary schools. When Baptist Health heard the grant was enough to fund gardens at all but three schools, we knew we had to help. We provided the supplies needed for the last three school gardens and donated wheelbarrows to all 16 sixteen schools – and those gardens are making an amazing difference in both the children and community of Conway. Read on for the top 4 benefits we’ve seen school gardens provide.
