Founded in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the SCNM Sage Foundation exists for the sole purpose of providing health care to disadvantaged families and children. Its mission, “To provide the unserved, underserved and indigent people of Arizona with quality natural and conventional health care” is accomplished through care provided at community clinics across Maricopa County by Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences (SCNM).
The community clinics serve patients with the best of conventional medicine (e.g. prescription medicines, lab work), preventative and alternative medicine (e.g. acupuncture, clinical nutrition, supplements, homeopathy).
