“Because Copa Health believes helping families and children with unique needs strengthens relationships and provides successful outcomes, we have partnered with Visit Mesa in offering services for families of children with autism spectrum disorders. Copa Health strives to deliver support and resources to people throughout the community and our visitors." --Dr. Shar Najafi-Piper, CEO, Copa Health

"COPA Health's team has completed additional autism training and certification as part of their dedication to supporting families and individuals with autism and other disabilities. We know families want to make memories together when they travel, but having a trusted provider to also allow adult caregivers to explore and enjoy a destination separately is so critical since this is a need that is rarely filled. " – Meredith Tekin, President International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards
