Travis Wright’s Legacy Means Better Health for Everyone

What most characterized activists and volunteers in the early years of the AIDS epidemic was their strong desire to help people stay healthy and stay alive. Travis Wright exemplified this spirit. Before the introduction of the more effective antiretrovirals we have today, the medications available at the time caused terrible side effects.

Travis Wright conducted research into alternative remedies and nutritional supplements that would bolster the immune system of people living with HIV and help address the numerous side effects. He started the Buyers’ Club at PACT for Life (People with AIDS Coalition of Tucson), one of SAAF’s predecessor agencies, and ran the program for many years. When Travis died in November of 1994, PACT changed the name to the Travis Wright Memorial Buyers’ Club in honor of his service to the community.

The Buyers’ Club is part of SAAF’s Complementary Therapies Program which provides access to alternative health care services such as naturopathy, acupuncture and chiropractic care as well as providing nutritional supplements to help people living with HIV/AIDS better manage their symptoms and HIV medication side effects.

With the generous support of many selfless volunteers and SAAF’s Care Services division, Travis Wright’s legacy continues on today.

Inventory

The Buyers’ Club does not advertise prices of products because manufacturers ask that retailers not display a price if product prices drop below a certain amount.

Our pricing indicates that the price of the items in the Buyers’ Club are so low that the manufacturers have requested that it not be advertised. This is good news for you!
