“The trust that patients give us inspires hard work and dedication. I see many students spending time outside of clinic researching conditions and ways that we may improve our treatments.” Dr. Jason Allen, SCNM faculty

The Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS is a research and resource center based in Phoenix. It is the largest clinical trial, education, behavioral health and nutrition support center dedicated to fighting HIV and AIDS in the Southwest.

The center’s vision, “leading the fight against HIV and AIDS,” is carried out through its mission of
reducing infection, improving quality of life and contributing to worldwide research.

Today, hundreds of thousands of people around the world are taking HIV- and AIDS-fighting drugs that
earned FDA approval, thanks in part to the center’s clinical trials and biomedical research program.

The SCNM clinic at Southwest Center of HIV/AIDS was one of SCNM’s first community medicine
programs. At this fast-paced clinic, student clinicians provide adjunctive care to patients, including lifestyle counseling, acupuncturecupping, and physical medicine. Learn that living well is a product of integrative care at this unique training opportunity.
