The Center for Health Partnerships (CfHP) branch of Nebraska Methodist College is always on the lookout for ways to improve the health status of members of the community.
Recently, the CfHP developed a program that aims to fill a crucial gap in healthcare access and education in a large portion of the Omaha metro area.

That all changed over the past couple months. We’re proud to announce that, through a partnership with the Douglas County Health Department, Nebraska Methodist College will now operate eastern Nebraska’s only mobile lead testing unit.Read More

A class of students actually just finished up their own Immersion trip in Omaha. And while they didn't board a plane to do so, their work still showcases the kind of dedication that our students bring to their professions no matter the locale.Read More
The home neared completion, not quite move-in ready but nearly there. The students were able to look from one to another with the realization that they had contributed in a substantial way to the future happiness of the couple who would be moving in just a few short days, ready to welcome their new baby into the world.Read More
