Excellence established the Valley Fever Alliance of Arizona Clinicians (VFAAC).
One reason for doing so is to assist Arizona patients seeking care for their Valley
Fever infections in finding clinicians to take care of them.
VFAAC was begun in 2009 involving Primary Care Clinicians and Medical specialists

for patients and physicians seeking help in managing Valley Fever infections. The
VFC-P will coordinate care at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center and also
with other VFAAC members throughout Arizona.
