The Dean's Letter

Dean’s Message | Winter 2019

I’m continually amazed at the ways our students, faculty and alumni reach underserved and vulnerable individuals in our community. They find innovative strategies for expanding their reach beyond the campus by forming partnerships in the community.

One notable partnership is with San Joaquin County Public Health Services (SJCPHS). The Opioid Coalition, formed by SJCPHS, identified seniors as one of the two high-risk populations for accidental opioid overdose in San Joaquin County. Pacific’s Medicare Part D Outreach Clinics were uniquely positioned to respond to this critical public health issue. By partnering with SJCPHS they were able to distribute Naloxone, a medication that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose, during the 2018 Medicare open enrollment season.

I would also like to highlight the partnership between the Department of Physical Therapy, Hope Haven West and Rotary International. In October, five of our doctor of physical therapy students worked alongside Hope Haven West and Rotary volunteers in Mexico. Together they distributed 340 wheelchairs in seven days.

This year marks the 22nd year that the Department of Speech-Language Pathology has partnered with the California Scottish Rite Foundation to serve children with communication impairments and disorders. This fall, our students served 62 clients at the Stockton Scottish Rite Childhood Language Disorders Center and they anticipate serving 59 clients during the spring semester.

We are heart-stricken for the many people impacted by the wildfires in California last fall. Students from all of our programs responded by initiating and organizing efforts to help meet the needs of the Paradise community. They collected clothing, shoes, toiletries, books and nearly $1,000 in gift cards; which they hand-delivered to The Salvation Army of Chico.

As you read through this issue of the Dean’s Letter, you will see examples of innovation, leadership and compassionate patient care.
