Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska creates scholarship for students at UNK.
BCBS’s gift created an endowed fund to forever support high school graduates from rural counties in Nebraska. This is an investment not only in high school graduates from greater Nebraska, but in health care professionals who want to serve rural communities.
The garden will allow patients and families at the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center to escape the realities of cancer and spend time outside.
The gift is an integral part of the Healing Arts Program. From reducing pain perception, stress, loneliness and depression to providing new insight about cancer diagnosis and treatment, the Healing Arts Program is being developed using evidence-based research to aid in healing patients.
A UNL alumnus realizes that planting seeds of kindness can change people’s lives.
“I’ve realized at this point in my life, that giving to others of your time and resources can change their lives…So let’s do something to change people’s lives. What should we do?”
Dr. Christine Cutucache, UNO’s first Haddix Community Chair of Science, learned to love STEM subjects through hands-on experiences.
Since being named Haddix Community Chair in Science a year ago, Cutucache has been reaching out to the campus and the community to promote STEM education in many innovative ways. She guides young mentors, working with undergraduate and graduate students who help younger kids explore science in an afterschool program.
