Former UArizona Director of Athletics Jim Livengood discusses the Arthritis Center's impact in Arizona Daily Star


The University of Arizona Arthritis Center was featured in the May 16, 2023, editions of the Arizona Daily Star. One of the first four multidisciplinary centers in the University of Arizona College of Medicine - Tucson, the Arthritis Center received its designation from the Arizona Board of Regents in 1985. Dedicated to the vision of living a life free of the pain of arthritis through excellence in research, patient care, education and community outreach, the Arthritis Center has trained countless medical students, residents and fellows in the care of patients with arthritis, while community outreach programs have helped to raise awareness and have promoted the concept of living successfully with arthritis.

The month of May serves as National Arthritis Awareness Month and highlights the Arthritis Center's efforts to advance its mission of making a difference in the lives of patients and their families by conducting research ranging from molecules to people, by empowering patients to take charge of their lifestyles, and by educating providers and scientists to provide compassionate care through delivery of novel, effective and safer therapies.
