Liberty University Public Health Student Association (LUPHSA)
Club Mission Statement
The purpose of the Liberty University Public Health Student Association (LUPHSA) is to promote health, wellness, and disease prevention within the community, convey awareness of career and academic matters related to public health, and foster Christ-like relationships among students and faculty for the growth and sustainability of the Liberty University Public & Community Health program.
What To Expect as a Member
As a member of this club, you will be able to practically put your public health knowledge into action by helping with annual health fairs and community outreach initiatives. Throughout the year, there will also be several social events, fundraisers, professional development opportunities, and monthly LUPHSA meetings.
In 2015, our club decided to partner with Nuevo Amanecer church in Lynchburg, Virginia and Iglesia Bautista Conexión in Richmond, Virginia to create a Mixteco health fair. This health fair has now become an annual local health fair for the indigenous Mixteco population that lives in Richmond, Virginia. Some of our other health activities have included sharing health information at the Yoder Center in Lynchburg, packing boxes for Operation Christmas Child, and hosting Save a Child’s Heart fundraisers.
