University of Nebraska Medical Center Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold will visit four Nebraska communities next week to learn about health care opportunities and challenges in the area, and how UNMC can better serve the communities’ needs.
The four locations are Chadron, Alliance, Mullen and North Platte.
Vice Chancellor for External Affairs Bob Bartee will accompany him as they meet health care providers, practitioners, college and community leaders in the above areas. The first public meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. June 30 in Alliance at the West Side Event Center.
Dr. Gold is expected to provide updates on UNMC’s economic impact in rural communities and the recently approved construction of a state-of-the-art education center – the Interprofessional Experiential Center for Enduring Learning (iEXCEL℠) – at UNMC.
He also will provide brief updates about construction projects at UNMC, including the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center; the Lozier Center for Pharmacy Sciences and Education and the UNMC Center for Drug Discovery (all one facility); and the Lauritzen Outpatient Center & Fritch Surgery Center.
