The Midlands Sexual Health Research Collaborative (MSHRC) is a group of faculty and students from various disciplines working together towards a healthy sexual life for all people, with access to resources for sexual well-being, informed decision making, and empowerment to live a sex-positive life free of coercion and discrimination in a stigma-free environment. Through innovative research, evidence-based education, mentorship, and community engagement we endeavor to create a more sexually literate world in which sexual health and well-being are experienced by all. MSHRC is housed in the School of Health and Kinesiology at the University of Nebraska at Omaha with strong ties to the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
The Adolescent Health Project seeks to create sustainable community-wide changes through a research based, results focused, comprehensive approach that will increase the sexual knowledge of youth and, thereby, decrease the number of youth engaging in risky sexual behavior and the rates of STDs and teen pregnancy. The Adolescent Health Project is a program of the Women’s Fund of Omaha , in partnership with The Sherwood Foundation, Douglas County Health Department, Nebraska Department of Education, Nebraska Methodist Health System, UNMC College of Public Health, and Girls Inc.
