ASORBO - Low Cost Durable Medical Equipment Project

The Sonoran UCEDD's first Border Conference on Disability in 2008 held in Nogales, Sonora led to the creation of ASORBO (Arizona – Sonora – Border), a non-governmental organization which constructs low cost durable medical equipment for people with disabilities on both sides of the Arizona-Mexico border.  ASORBO is currently constructing standard and custom-built all-terrain wheelchairs.

Tohono O'odham Community College Partnership

The Sonoran UCEDD and Tohono O’odham Community College (TOCC), a tribal college located on the Tohono O’odham Nation in Southern Arizona, is developing a disability information, education and student exchange partnership. The goal is to forge a sustainable partnership to increase knowledge and skills of both UCEDD and TOCC students and faculty on disability, culture, services and supports benefiting diverse communities.
