Sen Padilla, DrPH
Dr. Sen Padilla’s passion for promoting health and wellness and
preventing the onset of disease led to her decision to move from Los Angeles
County to San Bernardino County in order to study Public Health at Loma Linda
University and has since found her home at Beaver Medical Group, Department of
Health Education. As one of the
department’s Preventive Care Specialists she investigates and addresses the
interplay of lifestyle characteristics and its influence on health. Dr. Padilla believes knowledge is an essential ingredient for the creation of wellness;
therefore, she teaches a wide variety of classes from Healthy Habits to Art
Therapy. She also provides individual counseling for patients desiring to work
one-on-one instead of in a class setting.

Education Program and instructs the program’s classes. She specializes in
