This week, Dr. Elvira will speak with Dr, Richard Lane, who is currently a professor, and the Director of the Masters of Public Health Program at Liberty University. They will discuss the state of public health education and provide suggestions for those thinkning of a career in Public Health.

Dr. Lane became part of the Liberty University community in 1989 after completing seven years of military service as a flight surgeon. 

Since coming to Liberty, he has provided medical care for the students and faculty, and taught courses ranging from personal health, to microbiology, to missions medicine, and far more.  His current university role is as the director of the MPH program.  This opportunity comes after nearly 23 years as the campus physician and is the culmination of a life-long vision to train others to serve Christ in the field of public health.  During his time at Liberty, he has engaged in a number of missions related endeavors that have taken him to over fifty nations around the world. Dr. Lane currently serves as the Lead Medical Trainer for the CrossRoads Global Team with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ); an executive board member of Freedom 4/24, a ministry against sex trafficking; and as a medical consultant for World Help, a locally based Christian relief and humanitarian organization.  In the past year Dr. Lane has played a role in a university partnership with Samaritan’s Purse to train teams for disaster assistance through HEART (Humanitarian Emergency Advanced Response Training).  Dr. Lane is currently working to create an online health training certificate through Liberty University Online using a bilingual Spanish/English format to provide educational opportunities for Hispanic youth wishing an affordable option for continuing education at the college level.
