The purpose of Senior Healthcare Advocates and Resource Providers (SHARP) is to create a partnership of talented individuals and organizations, within the Northwest Arkansas, Southwest Missouri, and Northeast Oklahoma communities, whose representatives include but are not limited to: healthcare educators, case managers, social workers, marketing coordinators, and other healthcare providers whose emphasis is geriatric care.
The mission of SHARP is to create a network of healthcare, private sector, and industry professionals in the Northwest Arkansas, Southwest Missouri, and Northeast Oklahoma areas who have a desire to improve and enrich the lives of our geriatric population. This organization is designed to provide education to its members, create an environment where new ideas are exchanged openly, assist in planning healthcare events (members will be asked by board members to co-chair certain events), and participate in several community sponsored functions. The SHARP organization also wants to continually uplift and support its members; each month a member/organization will be “spotlighted” for its outstanding performance (i.e. getting a higher Medicare Star rating or community project).
