School of Allied Health Professions news

SAHP opens its doors to visitors

Bert Connell, PhD, RD, FADA, talks with prospective students.
Bert Connell, PhD, RD, FADA, chair of the nutrition and dietetics department in the School of Allied Health Professions, speaks with prospective students at the School’s open house held Sunday, April 10. About 300 people attended the afternoon, including 130 prospective students.
Having had three close family members—a grandmother, aunt, and brother—who’ve suffered from speech problems, Deborah Takahashi finds herself drawn toward a career in speech therapy.

That’s why the English major at Cal Poly Pomona attended SAHP open house on Sunday, April 10.

“The greatest thing about [LLU’s] program is that it’s very flexible,” she says.

Ms. Takahashi was one of about 130 prospective students out of a total of approximately 300 guests.

The visitors had their pick of informational sessions on admissions, financial aid, and various departments and specialties within the School. All the departments were represented: cardiopulmonary sciences, clinical laboratory science, health information management, nutrition and dietetics, occupational therapy, physical therapy, radiation technology, and speech-language pathology and audiology.

“This is our third open house as a School, and several of our departments hold their own open houses throughout the year,” says Karen Rieley of the School’s marketing and recruitment department. “[Open house] is a good way for our prospective students to see our campus and have their questions answered.”
