Welcome to the Valley Fever Center for Excellence’s official website.
Two-thirds of all U.S. Valley Fever infections are contracted in Arizona. Nationally,
Valley Fever is uncommon and considered an orphan disease. Yet it is so concentrated
in Arizona that this state needed an advocate to promote improvements in understanding,
medical care, and research about this disease. For this reason the Arizona Board
of Regents approved the proposal for the creation of the Valley Fever Center for
Excellence at the University of Arizona.
The Valley Fever Center for Excellence offers assistance to patients and owners
of companion animals who are seeking help with their Valley Fever infections. We
also offer services to health care professionals, scientists, and others interested
in learning more about this disease. If you find our work valuable, we would welcome
your financial contributions or volunteered time. More can be found by clicking
on the buttons above for these various areas.
