20th Anniversary Celebration for the Nebraska Rural Health Education Network

Developed by the Nebraska University Medical Centre, the Rural Health Education network (RHEN) was set up to provide educational opportunities for those living in more rural parts of the state.

Students have the chance to study a range of subjects including dentistry, clinical laboratory practice, pharmacy, medicine and other associated medical courses.

Like many rural areas of the United States, access to health and dental facilities can often be rather poor. With a shortage of around 9000 dentists in the USA as a whole, this particular scheme is a welcome part of the development of medical and dental health education, not just for the trainees themselves but also, and perhaps more importantly, potential patients.

Currently in Nebraska, 324 organisations form the education network, who serve 95 communities, with students rotating between the rural areas of the state and the cities and towns.

The RHEN isn’t the only organisation celebrating a birthday. A dental practice is also celebrating 60 years of business. Drewyer Family Dentistry began in 1951, with the founder’s son continuing after his father retired.

Speaking with reporters, Dr. Douglas Drewyer said: “While my dad maintained his practice at our home/office, I grew interested in dentistry and never looked back. At a young age I knew just what I wanted to do, but it wasn’t until my freshman year in dental school where I gained a newfound awe for what my Dad did. Through this I have gained the desire and ability to be rewarded every day through the relationships we establish.”

Dr. Drewyer himself has been practicing for 29 years. He said he is asking his patients to visit him during his holiday, when he plans to celebrate the practice’s 60th birthday.
