Program Overview

UACOM-Phoenix and CityServe began a partnership in 2012, allowing our students and faculty to participate in the largest direct-services event in Maricopa County - HopeFest Phoenix. 

Each year, faculty and students perform physical exams and offer medical care to hundreds of our uninsured, underinsured and underserved community members. 

Most importantly, we connect these patients with community clinics that have resources to facilitate long-term solutions to healthcare needs, promote independence, and provide a stable medical home.

Next year's event will be held at Chase Field (401 E. Jefferson St. Phoenix, AZ 85004) Spring 2017. To sign up, visit: 

Please only select one time slot, but feel free to add your name to the alternate list as well in case extra spots need to be filled.
You will receive 4 CHIP hours for participating. If you must cancel and do not notify me at least 24 hours before the event, 2 CHIP hours will be deducted.
