In this episode of Talk Business and Politics, host Roby Brock delves into the rapid expansion and evolution of CARTI, a Little Rock-based comprehensive cancer service provider.

The conversation with CEO Adam Head highlights the opening of The Bridge, a new facility funded by the CARTI Foundation aiming to centralize various support services for cancer patients and their families in one location. Adam discusses the importance of accessible, comprehensive care, detailing how The Bridge serves as a hub for educational resources, clinical trials, support groups, dietary guidance, physical therapy, and more.

Furthermore, the episode explores CARTI's significant impact in South Arkansas, particularly in El Dorado, where a medical oncology clinic has transformed into a comprehensive cancer center, thanks to a combined investment and funding approach, including ARPA funds and support from state leaders.

Adam also outlines future growth plans, focusing on enhancing existing centers and expanding services to meet patient needs across the state.
