Bob Rauner, MD, MPH:
Most of my prior working career has been in family medicine, spending 15 years taking care of rural and underserved populations. I started working more on community health issues after seeing the huge toll on health that obesity was taking on my patients. My academic background is a bit varied consisting of a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Creighton University, a medical degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and a master's degree in public health from Johns Hopkins. I also work part time as a clinical coordinator for Wide River Technology Extension Center and hold positions as chair of the Nebraska Medical Association's public health committee and co-chair of the Nebraska Academy of Family Physicians' legislative committee. My wife Lisa is also a family physician and I have 3 daughters that attend Lincoln Public Schools.
