Mission and Vision of CENTRIC

What is CENTRIC: The Center for Patient, Family, and Community Engagement in Chronic Care Management is an interdisciplinary community of faculty, students, and experts (clinical, academic and community members) whose work and interests focus on the prevention and self-management of chronic illnesses including but not limited to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. This University of Nebraska Board of Regents center was initially approved March 18, 2016, and was renewed in 2021. The Center is administered within the College of Nursing on the University of Nebraska Medical Center Omaha campus. 

The five CENTRIC Cores: Research & Scholarship, Industry & Innovation, Community Engagement & Scholarship, Postdoctoral & Mentorship, and the Qualitative Research Lab form a hub for interdisciplinary scholars to learn, share expertise, and create scholarly synergy and research productivity.

To be a leader and innovator in the science of self-management and prevention of chronic illness.
