LITTLE ROCK — Former President Bill Clinton says business leaders can work with the health care industry to promote a healthier culture for people in central Arkansas.

Clinton was joined by University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Chancellor Dan Rahn and business leaders at a forum on how it will take cultural changes to bring about better health.

The former president said it's like turning the Titanic around to get people to shed unhealthy habits.

Clinton Health Matters Initiative is taking a community approach to improving health by enlisting businesses and health care providers to work together to promote change.

Clinton praised the state's expansion of its Medicaid program to bring health insurance 200,000 more Arkansans.
