The Nebraska Center for Rural Health Research, formed in 1990, is organized as a multi-campus Center located within the College of Public Health, University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC).

The broad mission of the Center is to conduct research and analysis related to improving health care delivery in rural areas. The Center focuses on special populations among rural residents, including the elderly, children, minorities, mentally ill, under and uninsured, and new immigrants whose needs for assistance are unique.

Specific projects include analysis of national policies, studies of market-driven change in rural areas, studies of use of services by the elderly, and studies of access to, and utilization of health services by minority populations.
