Sage Foundation for Health

Your Support Changes Lives

Sonoran University’s Sage Foundation for Health provides funding to community clinics throughout Maricopa County which are staffed with licensed faculty physicians and third- and fourth-year medical students from Sonoran University of Health Science’s College of Naturopathic Medicine. Patients include families in low-income school districts, survivors of domestic violence, people of all ages recovering from homelessness and trauma, individuals living with HIV/AIDS, and patients recovering from substance use.

Clinical training students treat chronic and acute health conditions by working with the patients to restore health and improve self-care choices through daily diet, exercise, and stress reduction treatment plans. These shifts give students a unique opportunity to provide treatment and gain skills and experience in a community healthcare setting and enhance their cultural competence working with a diverse patient population. Treatments often include clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, physical medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, and prescription medicines when necessary.

Thanks to generous community support, services and treatments are provided to patients at no cost.
