CPHHE Partners

CPHHE Partnership


The Center for Promoting Health and Health Equity is comprised of both Omaha community organizational leadership and Creighton University academic personnel. This partnership fosters true community-academia partnering where there is shared knowledge, resources and power from both lenses where there has historically been a gap when addressing pertinent health determinants in our community. This partnership breeds collaboration through grant applications, intervention programming, training initiatives and information gathering and sharing in the efforts to eliminate health disparities in Omaha and Nebraska.
