ATSU Mesa campus faculty and staff were on hand to help celebrate the Nov. 2 opening of the new Adelante Health Center in Mesa, Ariz.

Adelante  is one of the 11 community health centers that represent the nation’s safety net in serving as community campuses for ATSU-SOMA medical students in their second through fourth years. In addition to ATSU-SOMA students at Adelante, physical therapy services will be provided at the new health center through ATSU-ASHS physical therapy faculty and students.
