Over the past 25 years, the Pope Paul VI Institute in Omaha, Nebraska, has impacted the lives of many individuals seeking healthy, moral solutions to issues in women’s health care. Major developments and achievements include: the Creighton Model FertilityCare System, a natural fertility tracking system that generates information about women’s reproductive health; and the new women’s health science of NaProTechnology, which is a collection of medical and surgical approaches that uses the Creighton Model System to help a woman reach her optimal state of reproductive health. These major developments drive the Institute’s current programs and services, which include: the National Center for Women’s Health, the Research Division, the FertilityCare Center, The Center for NaProEthics and several educational programs to train and educate medical professionals all over the world about the Institute’s developments. Since the Institute was founded, thousands of medical professionals, clergy, women, couples and families have been impacted by the Institute’s tireless dedication to the Culture of Life.
