The Loma Linda University Office of Public Health Practice and Workforce Development (LLU-OPHP) strives to enhance the capacity of the emerging and existing public health workforce to meaningfully engage in the public health practice issues of our time.
We promote community-engaged scholarship (CES) as our primary method to address and solve our partner’s service delivery and public health challenges. To this end, we collaborate with professional and lay communities throughout the Western United States and Pacific Rim by providing technical assistance to state, local and tribal governments in numerous practice areas, including:
The Inland Empire Affiliate serves more than 4 million people living in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties hosting 27,000 square miles of diverse geographic terrain from mountains and valleys to below sea level in the desert. The majority of the population is concentrated in the southwestern area of both counties. Many miles of the service area are national parks, military and desert.
The Drayson Center Preventive Care Clinic can help improve your lifestyle in order to lower your risk for chronic health problems such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, hypertension and other illnesses. The assessment taken and the information provided from the sessions can be utilized to maintain a high quality of life without significant health complications. Progress on adequate nutrition and body composition can be determined through subsequent sessions based on client’s personal wellness profile.
Healthy People in Healthy Communities brings people together to share information and develop strategies for achieving a new level of success in creating healthy communities by design. We convene a high quality conference on health, the built environment and geographic information systems (GIS) that generates energy for change. We provide access to strong leaders and public advocates to stimulate relevant dialogue in an environment of honest inquiry. This facilitates interdisciplinary efforts by people of diverse backgrounds and interests, to reframe the conversations around health and the built environment. Learn more>>
