Giving Back

First-year students from the Creighton University’s School of Pharmacy and Health Professions occupational therapy, pharmacy and physical therapy professional degree programs are learning from day one what it means to give back to the community and learn values that will make a difference in the world. As part of the students’ Welcome Week activities, 249 students participated in the Stuff a Truck Campaign. They sold bags at various Hy Vee locations where shoppers purchase the bags of food to help Heartland Hope Mission, the largest food pantry in Nebraska helping to feed the working poor.

Community service is a pillar of the Creighton mission and the vision of the School of Pharmacy and Health Profession is “serving, leading and advancing health for all.” Dean J. Chris Bradberry, reinforces that value message by talking about the “trust” they will earn as new healthcare professionals through their education at Creighton.

Creighton University is a Jesuit, Catholic university bridging health, law, business and the arts and sciences for a more just world.
