A Seventh-day Adventist Organization
You step into the ring, we'll provide the gloves.
Public Health is social justice and it takes guts to make a change. Anyone with the right attitude, an internet connection or a library card can learn about public health. But with a graduate degree from the Loma Linda University School of Public Health you will have the tools and experience required to back up the courage you bring to improve the world around you.
Knowledge is useless...unless
Public health knowledge alone is like a brand new car with no engine. It’s there, it’s nice to brag about, but unless you are putting it to use, it just takes up space. We believe that experience is the best teacher, research is only as important as the change it creates, and staying connected with communities is crucial.
Everything is connected
We believe that healthy individuals who are connected to healthy communities can lead to strong, sustainable healthcare systems. Our multidisciplinary approach to education revolves around three academic centers: the Center for Community Resilience; the Center for Leadership in Health Systems; and the Center for Nutrition, Healthy Lifestyle, and Disease Prevention.
Your spiritual path
One of our greatest assets is the diversity within our students, faculty, and staff. The multitude of cultures, experiences, and beliefs that walk our halls extends into our practice and research with communities locally and globally. While the roots of our institution run deep in the Seventh-day Adventist Christian faith, we celebrate and encourage our students to nurture their own spiritual paths.
