The Kansas Education and Research Network (KERN) serves a vital purpose by creating an essential link between primary care and public health. It connects resources to providers and providers to one another while creating a forum where they may learn from and support one another while contributing to the knowledge base for all. As a research body within Kansas Health Science Center (KHSC), KERN is aligned with the KHSC mission of finding collective solutions to advance underserved communities and the shared goal of improved patient outcomes.
Primary care practices support patients and communities. This role is abundantly clear in rural Kansas. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recognizes that primary care and public health were two essential aspects of the national health care system.
