Community Preventive Health Collaborative (CPHC)
CPHC is a program designed to allow CSUB nursing students to provide important health education and health screening services to community members who lack insurance/are underinsured and do not have resources to receive these services. CPHC is funded by grants for Kaiser Permanente and The California Wellness Foundation. We provide health teaching on a wide range of topics including diabetes, high blood pressure, nutrition, and exercise. Health screening tests that are performed include blood pressure, blood sugar, total cholesterol, and body mass index screenings. When an elevated result is found, a medical referral is initiated and follow-up is provided in order to link participants to a primary care provider. Our goal is to meet a community health need and provide effective learning experiences for student nurses.
Vision: Incorporate nursing education in preventive and health promotion activities as an innovative method for promoting health care for underserved populations.
Mission: Provide health promotion, health education, health screenings and case management services to promote the health and health practices of all community members.
