The Pinole Valley Health Academy is led by Will Heyward. It provides students with a foundation in body systems, followed by courses in bio-medical technology and medical interventions. Many students also take a sports medicine elective. They strongly believe in providing students with career related skills in health, as well as soft skills and interactions with professionals through project-based learning. The health academy has a strong partnership with Merritt Medical College, Contra Costa College, health facilities, and medical research companies.
