What We Do
The North Omaha Community Care Council helps promote ethnic diversity and cultural understanding essential to improving the overall health of Nebraskans through premier educational programs, innovative research to include community based participatory research and outreach to underserved populations in partnership with the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
It began as an idea and concept introduced to the faculty and staff of UNMC in the spring of 1996. Robin Kammandel, RN advocated to develop a closer relationship with the local communities though the development of Community Partnership. The formulation of a community advisory board was begun with the idea that members would either live, work or own businesses in the north Omaha area. The recruitment of 20 community members and one ex-official member from the Douglas County Board of Health would encompass the working advisory board.
