Program Details

Loma Linda offers unique degree programs and certificates to fit the lifestyle and career goals of the non-traditional student. The Lifestyle Intervention Program Certificate, offered by the School of Public Health’s Department of Health Promotion and Education, prepares participants to accurately assess the health-related lifestyle conditions, practices, and motivation of individuals and community groups. This will help them improve their health through implementation of health-related lifestyle intervention approaches.

Upon completion of this certificate program, students will be able to accurately assess lifestyle practices and conditions to identify and apply appropriate dietary, fitness, and other lifestyle-based interventions. Students will apply principles and methods to help individuals change their lifestyle-related health behaviors. Students will develop the judgement to decide when and how to refer individuals to various health care professionals. This program will also prepare students to provide leadership for community-based health promotion projects in selected settings.

This course is open to individuals with a minimum of a bachelor's degree in any field of study who desire to learn additional skills and knowledge in lifestyle intervention. Students or professionals in the healthcare field or those who desire an increased competence in lifestyle intervention can benefit from this program.

Following the successful completion of the program, each participant will be awarded a certificate in lifestyle intervention from Loma Linda University School of Public Health. The program takes a minimum of one year to complete and requires 27 credits. The program is accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Council on Education for Public Health.
