Lincoln, Neb. — Lori Seibel, President & CEO of Community Health Endowment of Lincoln (CHE) will present “Place Matters:” How does where we live, learn, work and play affect our health? The presentation will be Wednesday, Feb. 26 and 6 p.m. in 116 Chase Hall.
Where we live, work, and play affects our health. “By mapping factors such as poverty, obesity, access to health care, and more, we can get a more complete picture of health in Lincoln,” says Seibel.
Seibel’s presentation is on the third edition of the popular community mapping project produced in partnership with the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department. Seibel has been the CEO & President since the inception of CHE. Formed from the proceeds of the sale of Lincoln General Hospital, the endowment has grown from just under $38 million in 1998 to more than $62 million today even while CHE has invested more than $32 million in grants back into the community to support health in Lincoln. The vision of the Community Health Endowment is for Lincoln to be the healthiest community in the nation.
“Learn about Lincoln, our challenges, and opportunities – and take home a book of maps. Be ready to see Lincoln in new ways and inspired to make our city even better.”
