The SHARING Clinic was opened in 1997 with the goal of providing primary health care to underprivileged populations in the Omaha area. The clinic was founded by a group of medical and nursing students under the guidance of Jim Medder, a family physician, and Kathryn Fiandt, a nurse practitioner.
SHARING Clinic Mission
The UNMC SHARING clinics strive to enhance the well-being of the greater Omaha community by providing high-quality, low-cost health care and human services to those in need. In a multidisciplinary educational setting, the SHARING clinics empower patients and instill the values of service and compassion in UNMC students.
The SHARING organization oversees four clinics in the Omaha area: SHARING, RESPECT, GOODLIFE, & VISION. The UNMC SHARING Clinic is also partnered with a dental clinic in Lincoln, NE and a primary care clinic in Kearney, NE.
