RFI Project Update: Building Capacity for the Family Health and Wellness Coalition

Social, environmental and behavioral determinants of health account for 60 percent of a person’s health status. Consequently, community development can influence health and a healthy community has a significant economic impact.

Faculty from the University of Nebraska at Kearney, University of Nebraska Medical Center and the University of Kansas are honored to work on this RFI-funded project that is focused on building the capacity of the Family Health and Wellness Coalition of Nebraska’s Boone, Colfax, Nance and Platte counties.
