Experienced Faculty With Diverse Backgrounds
More than 150 faculty members work within the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health. They have a wide range of expertise, from monitoring and assessing health risks and opportunities in populations, to helping build health-supporting social environments through policy, advocacy, and programs. They are educators, advisors, researchers, practitioners and community leaders. They come from backgrounds in quantitative, behavioral, environmental and social sciences, policy and government, exercise and health sciences and anthropology, among many other areas. They all work in collaboration with each other and with community partners, and are especially focused on the training and education of future leaders and practitioners in the public health fields.
Randy Miller’s primary interest is in human movement studies, working to understand, improve and enhance methodologies related to exercise prescription and safe, effective program design strategies used to reduce injuries and improve performance in active individuals. He served as the director of the Physical Education program at PSU for almost two decades, where he supervised the Physical Activity courses and instructors.
Miller is a National Strength and Conditioning Association certified strength and conditioning specialist. He currently sits on the NSCA Certification Committee. He has worked with athletes at a local area high school – St. Mary’s Academy – and volunteered as a strength and conditioning coach for the Portland Rockies, a Single A affiliate of Major League baseball’s Colorado Rockies organization. His current research interests include: biomechanics of strength training, functional conditioning and injury prevention, and the use of strength training to prevent injuries and promote better performance.
