Mercy Health's McAuley Clinic Without Walls gives uninsured adults health care options free of charge and offers health screenings for patients in need. In one year the program has served more than 100 individuals. The clinic holds screenings one day each month at both the Rogers and Springdale Samaritan Community Centers.

In this edition of the KUAF Community Spotlight, Amber Freeman, a volunteer with the Northwest Arkansas chapter of the American Cancer Society, shares her battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma and the importance of working with caner patients and survivors in your community. 

The Tibetan Cultural Institute of Arkansas has been a fixture in Northwest Arkansas for nearly a decade. The non-profit seeks to bring authentic Tibetan culture to our community. The second annual Tibetan Film Festival, this weekend March 2-3, helps expose Arkansans to the rich heritage and people of the storied Central Asian region. The event will take place at Circle Square on 21 W. Mountain St. in Fayetteville and is free to the public. 

Sunday, March 4th, the Northwest Arkansas chapter of Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families will host its 17th annual Soup Sunday. The event will feature soups from more than 30 local restaurants, music and a live and silent auction. Tickets are $25 for general admission, $10 for children age 5 to 17 and free for children under 5-years-old.
