Jim Ali, MS, PA-C, ‘03, received the 2017 Humanitarian of the Year award from A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Health Sciences (ATSU-ASHS) Alumni Chapter Board. The award honors ATSU-ASHS graduates who demonstrate exceptional dedication, enthusiasm, and leadership through volunteer service. The award was presented to Ali at the reception for Physician Assistant Studies program students and alumni in Las Vegas on May 16.

Ali was nominated for his service to the underserved, specifically as the founder and CEO of Your Neighborhood Healthcare Center and Your Neighborhood Center for Pain Control in Phoenix. He established primary care and pain management practices using the business model he developed for his master’s thesis. The innovative approach uses midlevel providers and supervising physicians, a highly effective model in today’s competitive environment.

The centers primarily serve patients in south Phoenix, providing diagnosis and treatment of disease in a primary care and pain management setting. Additionally, the center offers free services at local middle schools, including athletic and general physicals, immunizations, health fairs, Medicaid sign-ups, and more. The centers’ defining attributes are their strong patient relationships.
