Public Health & Health Services Administration

Amy Castelluccio

Amy Castelluccio graduated from CSU, Chico with a Bachelor of Science in Health Science; option Health Services Administration - certificate in Emergency Medical Services (EMS). She earned her Master’s degree in Public Administration; emphasis in Health Services from the University of San Francisco. Amy is a 24-year experienced emergency medical technician (EMT) and her passion is in all aspects of EMS, including clinical, managerial, and advocating for quality patient care. In 2003-04, Amy was the EMS Specialist for San Joaquin County's EMS Agency. During this time, she had one of her biggest career accomplishments. She worked with San Joaquin County’s EMS Consultant, Richard Narad, DPA, to create a serviceable and measurable trauma plan for major trauma patients of San Joaquin County. The trauma plan is still active today; providing higher quality care for the trauma patients of San Joaquin County. Currently, Amy teaches Internship Seminar, Chronic and Communicable Diseases, and Public Health Policy and Systems. In her Internship Seminar classes, she engages her students to see health administration as more than managing, rather being a leader in an industry that is ever-changing. Her Chronic and Communicable Diseases students are actively participating in a service-learning opportunity; providing wound care to homeless individuals in Chico, while at the same time better understanding how wound infections can lead to major health illnesses. The students, as well as Amy, have found this project very rewarding! In Amy's Public Health Policy and Systems class, students are learning how the U.S. healthcare delivery system and public health communicate and interact. Besides teaching, Amy enjoys spending time with her husband and three teenage boys. She loves exercising, camping, snow trips, and reading.
