Founded in 1976, the UA Mobile Health Program is a clinic on wheels that provides health care to underserved people of all ages. With a focus on preventive care, the Mobile Health Program offers prenatal care, including group sessions to teach expectant mothers about nutrition, exercise and other topics related to pregnancy, birth and early childhood.
Proceeds will benefit the Dr. Augusto and Martha Ortiz Endowment, which helps sustain the UA Mobile Health Program that the Ortizes started in 1976. Augusto Ortiz provided care to families in underserved communities from Picture Rocks to Littletown and Arivaca, and other areas where health care was unavailable.
His wife was always at his side, keeping the mobile clinic running smoothly.
Since Augusto died in December 2006, Martha, now 90, has continued to serve on the endowment committee and as an advocate for the Mobile Health Program and the Ortizes’ vision of health care for all.
Gabriel Ayala, a member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe , has performed across the U.S. at premier venues including the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the National Museum for the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
