Jenkins Celebrates 35 Years of Service

Nov 9, 2008

Travis Jenkins, MD, has been a steadfast advocate and skilled service provider for persons with mental illness in Northwest Arkansas at Ozark Guidance for 35 years. He received his medical degree from UAMS and completed his residency at the William Hall Psychiatric Institute in South Carolina where he served as Chief Resident.
 
In 1973, Jenkins joined Ozark Guidance and served as Medical Director for over 30 years. During his tenure he helped grow the organization to the largest community mental health center in Arkansas. The care, education, and training Dr. Jenkins provided has touched the lives of thousands of area residents and improved the health and well-being of those individuals, their families, and the community at large.
 
Ozark Guidance President and CEO Tom Petrizzo says, “Travis has not just helped thousands of individuals and families throughout his career at Ozark Guidance, but he has done so with great dignity, utmost professionalism, and flair. When I’m out in the community I regularly hear outstanding comments from former clients or family members of clients that he helped.”
 
Recently, Dr. Jenkins became Chief Medical Officer Emeritus for Ozark Guidance. In this new role, he will continue his excellent clinical work, but also be an ambassador, trainer, and historian for Ozark Guidance and the local mental health community.
