Becky Kraenow, MPH

Executive Director

With a background in public health and communication, I have a good understanding of the need for the services of HelpCare Clinic. I hope to help our organization continue to fill this important need for uninsured, low-income individuals in our community.

I’m originally a Kearney native, and I’m excited to be part of this ministry here in my hometown. I love doing work that truly makes a difference. I enjoy being around people who feel the same. The mission of HelpCare and its incredible base of volunteer and community support is a blessing not only to me but to our entire community.

Becky earned her Master of Public Health (MPH) from the University of Nebraska Medical Center with a concentration in health communication and social marketing. She earned her bachelor’s degree in communication and biology from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri.
