About This Publication
OneThousandOne provides readers with a more in-depth look at the people and programs that make Nebraska Medicine an extraordinary place to go for your health care. OneThousandOne represents the amount of time, verbally, that it takes to count to one second. In this one second of time, a great thing happened at Nebraska Medicine. In fact, several great things probably happened. A patient was cured, a researcher found the missing link, a nurse treated an injury, a doctor comforted a family or maybe a child just smiled.
