At Family and Community Medicine, donors like you have a significant impact on our university and our students. Donor funds help support outstanding medical education, by a world-class faculty committed to preparing the next generation of family physicians. Your gift enables us to increase diversity in the profession, providing scholarships and resources benefitting pre-medical undergraduates and medical students. Our residents and fellows go on to serve with distinction.
You don’t have to look far to see the impact of our donors. Contributions have helped to ensure underserved people receive services to improve their health and students have opportunities to gain practical experience delivering care to those most in need. Some ongoing examples include:
- Our Mobile Health Program which provides quality prenatal and primary care to individuals and families without health insurance.
- Our American Indian Youth Wellness Camp which engages kids from tribes across Arizona through a culturally-based intervention that promotes healthy lifestyles to address obesity and prevent the early onset of diabetes and other chronic diseases.
- Our ArtWorks program which promotes community and mutual learning through expressive arts interactions between adults with developmental disabilities and UA students.
- Our innovative research in obesity, healthy disparities, cancer survivorship, complementary and alternative medicine, and substance abuse. One example, the Helper’s Program, testing a peer-based intervention to support smoking cessation in adults with serious mental illness.
No matter what the size, your contribution can make a meaningful and lasting impact. Thank you for your support of Family & Community Medicine and our efforts to educate future physicians, to discover effective ways to address health disparities and to improve the health of individuals, families and communities, in Tucson and across the state, region, nation and world.
