Team UAMS Gets Moving with the #ShowUsYourMoves Challenge

By Yavonda Chase

The Show Us Your Moves UAMS challenge used the hashtag #showusyourmovesuams on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The challenge encouraged employees and students to post a photo on social media tagging the Get Healthy UAMS page and using the hashtag.
