The University of Arizona Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (ArizonaLEND) is a leadership training program that prepares the next generation of policy makers, faculty, clinicians and researchers to lead the maternal and child health workforce.
We congratulate Cynthia Garcia (former 2018-2019 ArizonaLEND trainee) on completing the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) certificate program! The ASD certificate program prepares nurse practitioners to diagnose and manage pediatric patients with autism.
The University of Arizona LEND trainees started the year with a 3-day Leadership Intensive Workshop. They were joined by trainees from the University of Arizona Pediatric Pulmonary Center (PPC) and the Arizona State University TRANSCEND Program. LEND, PPC, and TRANSCEND are all leadership training programs funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
