Health and Wellness

Do you have a passion for health and wellness? 

NAU is a natural partner to your personal mission to advance the physical and mental health of individuals and communities. From our outstanding nursing program that is training the next generation of frontline healthcare workers to community-focused programs serving vulnerable populations, NAU needs supporters like you who are dedicated to improving quality of life for all.  



Looking for a way to make an impact on health issues in Arizona and beyond? You can make a real difference by donating to one of these funds: 


  • Center for Health Equity Research – The quality of our health is crucial to how well we learn, our enjoyment of life, and our power to find and keep a good job. Unfortunately, health disparities in northern Arizona are significant. The mission of the Center for Health Equity Research at Northern Arizona University is to collaborate with communities to build foundations and environments that support health and wellbeing. Learn more on the Center's webpage.


  • Community Access to Care – Did you know that the NAU Dental Hygiene Clinic is open to the public? Anyone can receive affordable, preventative dental services from students in the dental hygiene program. The clinic also offers free dental exams during events such as the Kiddie Clinic and Smiles for Veterans. Your support of the Community Access to Care program ensures these events remain accessible. Learn more on the Clinic's webpage.


  • Nursing Student Support – NAU’s School of Nursing aims to provide outstanding education to students at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels, who can provide high quality health care services to individuals and diverse communities in an environment of constant change and emerging healthcare trends. This fund provides critical support to current nursing students. Learn more on the Nursing Resources webpage


  • Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic – The NAU Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic provides evaluation and therapy services for children and adults with communication and swallowing disorders such as stuttering, aphasia, speech disorders, and more. Often these services are not covered by insurance, but thanks to donations the clinic provides reduced and no cost services to remove financial barriers that may prevent an individual from receiving much-needed intervention. Services are provided by graduate student clinicians working toward earning their master’s degrees in Clinical Speech-Language Pathology. Learn more on the Clinic's webpage

Support the NAU Hope Garden
The NAU Hope Garden will be an inviting place of beauty to inspire hope and healing and provide mental repose in a sustainable, nature-focused environment for all beings. This space will be created to honor and commemorate the burdens we have carried and the losses we have suffered through the pandemic. The Hope Garden will provide pathways to wellbeing through peace, contemplation, and connection to ourselves, our community, and the world.
