Loma Linda Health Policy Fellow to Create a Healthier Loma Linda

Mr. Andrejs Galenieks, a June 2013 graduate, recently finished a Randall Lewis Health Policy Fellowship in the MPH health policy and leadership program and helped design the Healthy Loma Linda initiative to make healthy, positive strides within the Loma Linda community. The initial goal of Healthy Loma Linda was for the city to join the San Bernardino county Healthy Cities Initiative. Mr. Galenieks organized a workshop to commence Healthy Loma Linda in November 2012 with a strong focus on the built environment. Participants pinpointed three priority areas that would help drive the Healthy Loma Linda workshop series: pedestrian and bike safety, food environment, and a desire for a downtown in the city of Loma Linda.
