The Inland Health Professions Coalition (IHPC) was established in March 2007 to connect the Health Careers stakeholders in the Riverside, San Bernardino, Pomona Valley and Innovation Valley regions. View 2018 Annual Report.
Members of the Inland Coalition include K-12, community college and university faculty, hospital and health care agency representatives, county office of education staff, and interested professional organization and community agency representatives who work to address the growing need for health care workers in the Inland Empire. We do this by developing goals and objectives that directly support health pathway programs in the junior high and high schools throughout our region.
