Health 20/20

We're taking our 20th birthday party to the community!

To celebrate 20 years of promoting health in Lincoln, CHE is sponsoring Health 20/20, a series of 20 health-related events. CHE is partnering with local organizations to produce these events. Over the course of a year, we'll be in many of Lincoln's neighborhoods, so watch for an event near you. All events are free and open to the public.
