The Southwest Center 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 clinic at Southwest Center was one of Sonoran University of Health Sciences’ first community medicine programs. At this fast-paced clinic, student clinicians provide adjunctive care to patients, including lifestyle counseling, acupuncture, cupping, and physical medicine. Students and patients learn that living well is a product of integrative care.
