Community Partners - Arizona and Regional

The College has a long history of service in  communities throughout the state, the region, the nation and internationally.  This commitment is reflected in the mission of our College:  The Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health is dedicated to promoting the health of communities in the southwest and globally with an emphasis on achieving health equity through excellence in education, research & service.   It is also clearly reflected in the extensive involvement of our faculty, academic professionals, staff and students in numerous partnerships with communities to improve the quality of life in our region.  This page includes a partial list of our regional collaborative partners (those which cross state lines, but include geographic Arizona), and partners in the state of Arizona (either statewide or a particular region of the state).  These are categorized generally by community sectors:  academic institutions, Area Health Education Centers (AHECs), border health, community based programs and groups, health departments/local government departments, healthcare/clinics/hospitals, schools, workforce/professional programs and agencies.
