The Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture (PIHMA), College & Clinic, received the 2013 Baily Award for its significant contribution in the delivery of Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS programs. Under the direct supervision of licensed acupuncturists (PIHMA faculty), PIHMA student interns have treated patients at the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS for the past five years providing more than 3,000 treatments valued at over $100,000.

The Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS is the largest clinical trial, education, behavioral health and nutrition support center dedicated to fighting HIV and AIDS in the Southwestern United States. This coveted award is named after Bob Baily, an emeritus director and member of Body Positive, now Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS, and recipient of the Outstanding Philanthropist Award at the Phoenix Body Positive’s Night for Life 2005. PIHMA continues to treat patients at the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS at 1144 East McDowell Road.

The Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture (PIHMA), now in its 18th year, is the Valley’s only accredited Asian medical college, offering four-year Master of Science degrees in acupuncture and oriental medicine at 301 E. Bethany Home Road. The graduate programs offer the highest level of education and training in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, with more than 3,000 hours of oriental medical theory and practicum, herbal medicine and dietary therapy, Western science, and an extensive clinical internship, including an on site community clinic.
