University of Arizona

The Southwest Center for Health Innovation (CHI) FORWARD NM program works with the University of Arizona to provide six-week rural rotation experiences for their medical students.  Students experience rural medical practice firsthand, working in a variety of health care settings throughout their rotations.

The University of Arizona College of Public Health was also one of four partners on the REACH Su Comunidad Consortium, a group convened by SWCHI to address health disparities experienced by Hispanics/Latinos through creating better environments for good nutrition and physical activity. The College provided guidance and support to the REACH Su Comunidad program’s grantees in Arizona.
