Founded in downtown Tucson in 1922, the original El Charro Café is located at 311 N. Court Ave. Featuring Northern Mexico-Sonoran style cuisine, it claims to be the nation’s oldest continuously family-owned Mexican restaurant. Known for its carne seca, the restaurant is one of two in Tucson that claim to have invented the chimichanga—a deep-fried burrito smothered in cheese and enchilada sauce.

The Petersen Clinics at the University of Arizona have been providing comprehensive care for HIV/AIDS patients in southern Arizona for more than 30 years. They are funded by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)—a unit of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services—through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program. With the support of the Ryan White Program, all eligible HIV-positive patients can receive primary care at reduced or no cost.

The UA Petersen Clinics, while operating at the Banner – University Medical Center Tucson and South hospitals, are part of the UA Division of Infectious Diseases. HIV care at these clinics was rated No. 3 in the nation by the University HealthSystem Consortium in its Critical Care Outcomes Report. They are named for a former division chief, Eskild Peterson, MD, who is now editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Infectious Diseases in Denmark.

The division also runs the Arizona AIDS Education & Training Center, which is funded by HRSA grants as well and is focused on providing health care professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to offer outstanding care to people living with HIV and AIDS.

Health-care providers seeking information on referrals and consultations for HIV patients can also contact the Banner - UMC Physician Resource Service.
