Factors Determining Health and Well-Being

Factors Determining Health and Well-Being

Over 80% of the factors that determine health come from social and economic circumstances, personal health behaviors, and the physical environment in which a person lives. Creighton's educational programs at the Highlander Accelerator are focused on this 80%. By doing so and working in cooperation with the Highlander community and local health care facilities, the health of the whole person can be addressed.

About the Highlander Community

About the Highlander Community

Creighton University is a tenant in the Highlander Accelerator. This community enrichment center is a part of the revitalization project occurring along 30th Street between Hamilton and Lake Streets in North Omaha hosted by the community quarterback, 75 North.

The Highlander community is based on the Purpose Built Communities Model created after successful transformation of the East Lake neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia. This holistic model works to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty through mixed-income housing, cradle-to-college education, and community wellness.
