    The 25-mile rule was set by the voters. The actual boundaries will be determined by where the licensed dispensaries are operating. At this time, there is no public information about that.

    In Arizona, Dispensaries will not be run by the state. You’ll need to check the employment section of the newspapers or online. Good luck with your job search.

  7. Searching for an Externship in Phx AZ

    This probably has nothing to do with this topic but I only have a week to complete my project of searching for an Externship. Thank you for your time.

    To whom it may concern:

    I am currently a student at Arizona College, Glendale Arizona, attaining my Diploma as a Health Information Specialist. I have completed classroom learning and now in process of entering my extern/internship session. I am searching for an extern site that is not affiliated with Arizona College.

    In order to graduate, I must complete 200 hours a minimum of 32 hrs a week, preferably 40 hours. I…

  8. Suggestions for Job opportunities for pre-licensed Dr's in AZ

    Dear Mr. Humble or Az Gov,

    I have a dear friend that is stuck in the paperwork shuffle of 1500+ monthly board certifications to be able to practice medicine in Scottsdale, Az. I don't know much about this system, but I do know that it is a very slow process to get licensed here. He has already been a senior resident + in Missouri and recently moved here (2 months ago) and seems to be struggling while waiting for his license approval which could again be passed up in the quarterly review due to the large amount of apps. I…

    The law does not give the Department of Health Services jurisdiction over the Medical Board. Your question should be addressed to them or the legislature.

    The Medical Marijuana cards are valid for one year after they are issued. If you are assigned the card on April 24, 2013, it is valid until April 23, 2014.

  10. Patient Rights regarding Dispensary Treatment

    Many "Patients" are being treated like lower class citizens, by dispensary Staff. We are not Customers/Clients/ Consumers we are Medical Patients. Staff needs to have training in "Patient" Compassionate Care. NOT JUST Card Carriers who smoke marijuana. All the information you have is only about opening a BIG MONEY MAKING Business to grow and dispense marijuana.. STOP the Cheech & Chong Atmosphere Patients HAVE RIGHTS please address them for the public & as a reference for Patients and Dispensaries alike. Many of us are being ABUSED and mistreated.

  11. Rename HCTC for children as Therapeutic Foster Care

    I direct an HCTC program for youth in Maricopa County, for Christian Family Care Agency. We have eleven therapeutic foster homes. I would like to suggest that we stop calling the program HCTC, and call it Therapeutic Foster Care, as the rest of the nation does. Arizona is possibly the only state that uses a somewhat cryptic name, more appropriate to dealing with adult Developmentally Disabled, than with children in a homelike setting.

    Arizona is a closed record state. Only certain people are able to obtain copies of birth and death certificates. We do have an excellent website for death records that are old enough to be released: http://genealogy.az.gov/

  13. Incorrect link on website

    Thank you for linking to us from your Arizona Immunization Program page. The link text is "Other Health Resources for Vaccinations" and links to www.cir.org. The link should go to www.211arizona.org or it could go to our health page at www.211arizona.org/health. Thank you for fixing this link.

    Hospice does not need a behavioral health license. Behavioral health care is part of the Hospice delivery model and built into the policy and procedures, nursing and assessments of care. If you have further questions about this, feel free to call the Office of Medical Licensing at (602) 364-2536 or online at

  16. SNF requirements for TB Screening, specifically the age of the chest x-ray?

    Your article R9-10-407 is confusing and is mis-interpreted in my SNF. Is the chest x-ray good for 6 months or 12 months? Is this changing in October 2013? Thank you for your response in advance.

    If an individual has a positive mantoux test or other screening test i.e. chest x-ray, a written statement from a medical practitioner that the individual is free from infectious TB is provided and is dated within 6 months before start date for providing service.

    The every 12 months after the date of the most recent screening test or written statement, there must be documentation of a negative Mantoux skin test or screening i.e. chest X-ray administered within 30 days before the anniversary date of the most recent screening test or written statement.

    This is currently not a function that patients can access from our website for this. If you visit a dispensary, they are required to check the validity of your card. They are also able to see the last 14 and 60 calendar days of your purchases

  19. WIC

    I would also express my suggestion on WIC recipients. When they sign up for WIC, they are supposed to be given a book that describes
    what they can and cannot get. I believe that when they are granted
    WIC, they should HAVE to attend a class on reading the book and UNDERSTANDING the book, as to what they can and cannot get. I work in retail and deal with NON English speaking people on WIC all the time. They ALL tell me they did NOT receive a booklet or instructions, on what they can and cannot get. I have repeatedly…

    Thank you for your suggestion for the Arizona WIC Program. You are right, WIC clients are given a copy of the Arizona WIC Programs Food List. This booklet provides the foods that can be purchased with WIC benefits for the Arizona WIC Program, the Navajo Nation WIC Program, and the InterTribal Council of Arizona, Inc. WIC Program. There are some new changes in the WIC Food List that were effective on July 1, 2013. You can find the new booklet on the Arizona WIC program website, www.AzWIC.gov . Click on the box for “WIC Foods”. On this website, clients can also access videos to learn more about WIC foods.

    Since you work in retail, there are additional resources available and a special section of the Arizona WIC Program website just for Vendors. Authorized WIC vendors receive a special version of the WIC Food List that matches the information for clients…

    Hey there, I wanted to reach out to you with a suggestion for content on your site. I noticed that you had linked to the CDCs STD rates site and thought your readers might like a visual follow-up post: http://www.topmastersinhealthcare.com/state-risks/

    I am promoting this new interactive graphic that highlights the best and worst states based on various factors, including sexually transmitted disease rates. I thought perhaps your readers might be interested. The embed code is on the page and all I ask is that you cite the source if you do post it. I can send visitors to your post…
