The Loma Linda University chapel program for February 15 is set to feature a leader from the campus of LLU.

James L. Kyle II, MD, MDiv, dean of the School of Public Health, will be the speaker for the February 15 chapel program.

Dr. Kyle earned his BA with a major in religion at Loma Linda University in 1973; a master of divinity degree in 1977 from Andrews Theological Seminary, Berrien Springs, Michigan; and his MD at UCLA Medical School, Los Angeles, in 1987.

Before coming to Loma Linda, Dr. Kyle was the vice president for the California market of Schaller Anderson, as well as pastor (part-time) of the Breath of Life Seventh-day Adventist Church in Westchester, California.

Prior to that, Dr. Kyle’s professional experience includes serving as president/CEO of Genesis Healthcare Strategies, and administrative dean for

the College of Medicine at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles.

Not only is he a physician and pastor, but from 1995 to 2000 he served as captain in the U.S. Army Reserve as a primary care physician, receiving many awards including the Army Commendation Medal. Dr. Kyle has also presented more than 250 health presentations on KUSI Television in San Diego from 1992 to 1996.

Loma Linda University chapel programs are sponsored by the office of student affairs and are held in University Church on the Loma Linda campus. Programs are held every Wednesday from 11:10 a.m. to 12:00 noon. All students, faculty, and staff of Loma Linda University are encouraged to attend.
