New websites for the University of Arizona Division of Infectious Diseases and the UA Petersen HIV Clinics—developed in conjunction with UA Health Sciences BioCommunications and the UA Department of Medicine—are now live.
The following web addresses actually were launched a few weeks ago:
“We feel this offers a better representation of the breadth of what faculty and staff in our division do as a multidisciplinary team that works collaboratively across multiple divisions, departments, colleges, centers and institutes at the University of Arizona,” said division Chief Elizabeth Connick, MD.
“We’re proud of the work we do in educating physicians of the future, performing cutting edge research and providing excellent clinical care through our partnership with Banner – University Medical Center Tucson and South. We’re also proud of outreach efforts in the community regarding infection prevention and public health interventions, particularly with respect to HIV prevention.”
The websites also now conform with the new web design platforms launched by the Department of Medicine in April 2016 and the UA College of Medicine – Tucson in January 2017, noted Paul Fini, BioCom senior website designer/developer.
Added features include:
- An expanded Research webpage with links to multiple studies by Infectious Diseases faculty
- A Fellowship section broadened to include Alumni and “Where Are They Now?” webpages as well as an updated fellowship training manual and details on related “Mentor/Research Opportunities” not just within the division but across the UA Health Sciences colleges
- A Clinical Practicums webpage with links to “independent learning modules” for the Petersen HIV Clinics and Refugee Preventive Health Screening Program
- A Patient Care section with information on Antimicrobial Stewardship, the OPAT Program, Infection Prevention and the Transplant Infectious Diseases Program as well as care for HIV and Valley fever
- A Community Outreach webpage with links to the UA Valley Fever Center for Excellence, Petersen HIV Clinics, the clinics’ Team Rx pharmacists group, and the Arizona AIDS Education & Training Center (AETC).
Wherever possible on the Patient Care and Community Outreach webpages, program directors are listed along with contact information.
The Petersen clinics are run by the UA Division of Infectious Diseases with funding by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), a unit of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, under the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.
Likewise, the Arizona AETC and Refugee Screening Program also are run by the division under similar federal grant funding.
