Great Plains IDeA-CTR Network
The Great Plains is a vast, rural region with pockets of urban development. Geographic and social isolation-combined with lack of access to primary and specialized care in both rural and underserved urban areas-characterize some of our most vulnerable populations.
The Great Plains IDeA Clinical Translational Research (CTR) Network is a collaborative effort between nine institutions in Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota and Kansas to reach these medically underserved populations and transform health delivery and outcomes in the Great Plains region.
With generous funding from the National Institutes of Health and a belief that “together we are better,” the Great Plains IDeA-CTR Network seeks to advance the NIH mission to improve the health of Americans across the lifespan through innovative research, high quality patient care, outreach to underserved populations, and premier educational programs in the areas of mind, brain, and body health.
