CSG Historical Proceedings



 

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.
