EMPOWER is a student-led, inter-professional initiative founded at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) with a twofold mission focused on awareness and education of domestic and sexual violence. We seek to provide opportunities for students, health care providers, and community members to become involved in efforts to minimize domestic and sexual violence in our community and beyond. We achieve our mission through on-campus activities and community outreach events.
