Research Interests

Juan Carlos Belliard (Ph.D., Claremont Graduate University, M.P.H., Loma Linda University) teaches in the areas of culture and health, traditional, complementary and alternative medicine, ethnographic research methods, health disparities, and migrant health. He applies service-learning methods to his teaching in local communities (Southern California) and in field courses in Latin America. Dr. Belliard is also involved in various initiatives that strengthen community-university relationships, serves on the board of the Social Action Health System, a Federally Qualified Health Center serving San Bernardino, and enjoys exposing students to “real world” education through service-learning and community engaged research.  His administrative duties include his position as Assistant Vice-President for Community Engagement and Diversity and Director of the Institute for Community Partnerships (ICP) at Loma Linda University Health. Besides facilitating community engagement and community engaged scholarship between the community and the university, ICP has two strategic areas of focus: a) Promotor/Community Health Worker training, and b) Health career pathways for underrepresented minorities and educationally disadvantaged youth.
