Creighton Recognized by Pope Paul VI Institute

The Creighton University School of Medicine has been awarded the Pope Paul VI Institute Award for its support of the educational programs of the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction, based in Omaha.

The award was presented in June by Thomas W. Hilgers, M.D., institute director, to Sally C. O’Neill, Ph.D., associate dean of Creighton’s Continuing Medical Education Division, during a ceremony in Rome. This is only the eighth time the institute has presented its highest award; previous recipients include Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

The institute is known worldwide for its research and educational programs in natural fertility regulation and reproductive medicine. Continuing Medical Education has provided educational credits for a number of the institute’s programs.
