The Center for Promoting Health and Health Equality (CPHHE) is a community-campus collaboration that promotes health and health equality through research, education and intervention. Community members and Creighton University health sciences’ faculty have formed a partnership of equal parity using seed funding from Nebraska Tobacco LB-692 monies. The partnership developes, evaluates, and disseminates multidisciplinary culturally competent research methodologies and health promotion behavior interventions aimed at improving the health of vulnerable populations and reducing health disparities. Community health is the primary focus.
Respect, justice, care and other ethical values guide this collaborative-partnering endeavor. Because CPHHE values good health, it serves as champions for enhancing our quality of life and the elimination of disparities that lead to negative health outcomes.
