Faheemullah Beg, M.D., is a practicing physician at Baptist Health Heart Institute/Arkansas Cardiology Clinic–Conway. He grew up in a small town in northern Pakistan and was interested in health care from an early age. “We had minimal access to health care where I grew up,” he recalled. “Mostly when we saw a physician, it was during sickness, and those physician visits usually preceded wellness. So, I had a positive emotion related to this profession.”

But they knew they could not do it alone. They joined forces with their core and community partners to announce Vaccinate the Natural State, an initiative to encourage Arkansans to get their COVID-19 vaccine.
