A fourth generation Arkansan who grew up in Rogers, Arkansas, Dr. Greg Bledsoe lives the values of our state.
As a lifelong conservative and Republican, Greg is dedicated to protecting the unborn, fighting for our Second Amendment rights, lowering taxes, investing in education, encouraging entrepreneurship in Arkansas, and supporting our state's small businesses.
Greg loves the natural beauty of Arkansas, and believes stewarding our natural resources is a must to maintain our quality of life in the Natural State.
Greg has been married to his wife, Sara, for seventeen years, and they have three amazing daughters. Sara has a Masters degree in Education (MED) and was a public school teacher and reading specialist. Sara now teaches their children at home.
Greg and Sara are Christians who are active in their church in Little Rock.
The Bledsoes love to travel as a family, and their girls are active in soccer, softball, and martial arts.
After completing medical school and residency at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS), Greg spent five years on faculty in the Johns Hopkins Department of Emergency Medicine completing a two-year fellowship in International Emergency Medicine and a Masters in Public Health (MPH) from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
In 2005, he received the “Teacher of the Year” award from the Johns Hopkins Department of Emergency Medicine, and was the chief editor of Expedition and Wilderness Medicine, a 700 page medical text published by Cambridge University Press. Greg has been a consultant with the US Secret Service and participated in multiple diplomatic missions including on the advance team for President George W. Bush and as the personal physician for former President Clinton during their African tours.
For the past twenty years, Greg has practiced Emergency Medicine in a variety of settings-- from the North Pole to Antarctica to many small, rural hospitals throughout the southern United States-- and believes access to quality health care is essential, especially in the rural parts of our state.
In 2015, Greg was appointed by Governor Asa Hutchinson to be the Surgeon General for the State of Arkansas, a position he continues to hold. In his role as surgeon general of the state, Greg has been involved in a diverse range of health care policy issues.
As a physician still practicing in a busy Emergency Department, Greg brings his clinical experience to our state's capital to advocate on behalf of patients and those who care for them.
Greg is passionate about innovation and entrepreneurship, and believes that entrepreneurs and small business owners are the key to keeping our small towns thriving.
Twelve years ago, Greg founded a small medical education company called ExpedMed and has traveled all over the world teaching expedition medicine. Greg knows firsthand how difficult it is to maintain a small business during turbulent economic times.
In addition, since 2018 Greg has worked as a strategic advisor to New Road Capital Partners in northwest Arkansas, and in 2021 graduated with a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
