Kearney, NE

Where we live and serve

The Kearney community action committee (CAC) is in central Nebraska. It is both rural and urban communities. We have two hospitals here, a level two trauma center and the University of Nebraska.

About our CAC

We have 8 members that includes: two registered nurses (one is a certified anesthesiologist), registered dietitian who is a licensed medical nutritionist, person with Parkinson’s, certified dementia practitioner, occupational, physical and speech therapy, and licensed psychologist. In the future, we would like a parish nurse or clergy member, someone from the city council, as well as neurophysicians.

Our “Why?”

Currently, our community experiences a lack of…

  • Parkinson’s referral base or communicate about services
  • Limited resources and programs for individuals with Parkinson’s

Our Healthy Parkinson’s Community Vision

  • Establish a referral base from medical doctors to all the other supporting programs that are trying to offer holistic care to people living with Parkinson’s
  • Improve networking and seek stewardship opportunities
  • Increase Parkinson’s resources and programs
