Northeast Nebraska Rural Health Network

Vision and Mission Statement for Northeast Nebraska Rural Health Network

     The vision of the Northeast Nebraska Rural Health Network (NNRHN) is: Working together we create a healthier community. The NNRHN mission is: In Northeast Nebraska our ruralness is our strength; it gives us resiliency, requires us to be creative and invites a spirit of neighborliness. Being rural also requires us to maximize our resources; that’s why we are working together as partners to improve community well-being and address difficult health challenges such as mental wellness, obesity and the chronic diseases that go with it. Partners of the Northeast Nebraska Rural Health Network are collectively working to measure the health of the area, address health challenges and eliminate disparities which will create a healthier community for all.
