Our History

Founded in 2004, American University of Health Sciences Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, data-driven community-based research organization that was created to relieve the suffering of the poor, distressed, and underprivileged through research and education in health sciences: nursing, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology. The research organization is committed to development of educational and healthcare policies and interventions that help improve the health, socio-economic, and education opportunities for underrepresented populations, in particular, the homeless and youth. The Foundation has worked tirelessly for the past decade in helping to meet said needs at its basic level via immediate disbursement of resources through the various community outreach programs it sponsors and has developed youth education programs and summer camps to introduce and inspire our future workforce to pursue careers in health care.

The organization is concerned with encouraging scholarly inquiry related to education and public health for the underprivileged population and by promoting the dissemination and practical application of research results. Based on our research, we produce and disseminate knowledge, refine methods and measures, and stimulate translation and practical application of research results to serve the public good.

AUHS Foundation is a Christ-centered research and service organization dedicated to acquiring knowledge through scholarly inquiry and developing intervention and outreach programs based on those findings to affect and improve the lives of underserved and underrepresented communities. The AUHS Foundation emphasizes the values of faith in God, love of humankind, and belief that all people have a right to healthcare and deserve a good quality of life based on wellness of body, mind and spirit. The AUHS Foundation celebrates diversity and reaches out to underserved populations no matter their religious beliefs. While the AUHS Foundation is committed serving the whole individual both in body and in spirit, participation in religious activities is optional and completely voluntary for research participants and community program recipients.
