UAMS Schmieding Developmental Center Awarded $651,000 For Program Expansion

The Schmieding Developmental Center in Lowell, a pediatric program of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, recently received a three-year, $651,000 grant from the Schmieding Foundation to expand its programs and support operations.

The center, which provides state-of-the-art developmental assessment and care for children birth through 18, is part of the UAMS College of Medicine Department of Pediatrics. The Schmieding Foundation, an independent foundation in Springdale, has long supported the center, beginning with the initial endowment to create the center in 1993.

“The Schmieding Foundation is deeply committed to supporting the talented professionals who are uniquely qualified to assess health care and behavioral needs of northwest Arkansas’ children,” said Gilda Underwood, Schmieding Foundation president. “We are pleased that Dr. Mary Ann Scott and her team are here and provide comprehensive evaluations and treatment recommendations so their families know how to help their child grow under challenging conditions.”   MORE
