Message from our Dean

Heidi DiFrancesca
Dean, School of Health Sciences

“There is not a separation between my faith and my professional role because my faith informs everything that I do, and I am not who I am without my faith. I attribute the favor that I’ve gained and my successes as a result of my relationship with Christ — the most important thing about me — and I want that to be recognizable.”
– Dr. Heidi DiFrancesca, Dean

What Health Sciences Alumni are Saying

Victoria Baldwin | M.P.H.: Global Health

All my experience through my undergraduate and graduate career at Liberty has helped prepare and shape me into the public health professional that has been able to step into crisis situations and provide aid to those in need.

Letesha Newsom | Ph.D. in Health Sciences: Exercise and Sport Science

The degrees I earned from Liberty have helped me to empower people to manifest positive changes mentally, physically, and spiritually through commitment and teaching healthy lifestyle options.

Daniel Reddy | Biology & Chemistry

It was a great experience attending small classes and having plenty of one-on-one interactions with professors who are knowledgeable in their fields and most importantly caring about your professional development. I got into my top choice Ph.D. program, and I credit the role my professors played in my time in the LU chem program for this.
