HNP - Healthy Neighborhood Projects
Healthy Neighborhoods Projects is an initiative run by the medical students of Loma Linda University. They are comprised of eight different programs that address the educational, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of San Bernardino, with a focus on the SACHS Norton community, its youth, and their families. These programs are provided to the community throughout the school year (October through May) with breaks for holidays and school vacations. Registration forms are available on-site.
Mission Statement: The purpose of Healthy Neighborhood Projects is to build collaborative relationships between LLU students/faculty and the San Bernardino community, with a focus on the Norton community, its youth (K-12 students) and their families, by increasing their awareness and access to educational and health resources for a mutually beneficial approach to teaching, learning and improving health outcomes and eliminating health disparities among residents.
