Father Steven Boes, Boys Town National Executive Director, was one of nine Creighton University Alumni Merit award recipients at the University’s annual alumni homecoming weekend Sept. 19, 2014.
This award is conferred annually on outstanding graduates of each of the schools and colleges. Attending the ceremony were his parents Gene and MaryJane Boes along with Fr. Marvin Boes and Lisa Schuma-cher.
Creigh-ton’s awardees provide distinguished service to the University and show personal qualities that mark him or her as cultured and of high moral principles guided by the Jesuit ideal of being men and women for others.
Father Steven Boes obtained his graduate degree in 1994 from Creighton University.
Father Boes is the fourth priest to succeed Father Edward Flanagan, who in 1917 founded the iconic Boys Town. The national executive director since 2005, Father Boes oversees what is now one of the largest privately-funded nonprofit, nonsectarian child care agencies in America. Father Boes has more than 20 years experience as a nonprofit director, counselor and youth advocate. The Carroll, Iowa native has been a priest in the Archdiocese of Omaha since 1985 and earned his master’s in counseling degree from Creighton University. He has been a pastor and teacher in Norfolk, Fremont and Omaha and was also director of St. Augustine Indian Mission in Winnebago, Neb.

New Flu Shot Prevents Against Four Strains

September 26, 2014 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

“This fall, Antelope Memorial Hospital and its clinics are providing a new influenza vaccine that provides protection against four strains of influenza – instead of three,” said Karen Gallagher, Registered Pharmacist at AMH. “The vaccine is called QUADravalent. It was developed to provide protection against both of the B strains — not just one or the other.”
Each year, the choice of strains included in the influenza vaccine is made by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center of Disease Control (CDC). In six of the last 10 years, the influenza vaccine did not protect against the B strain that seemed to be causing the most disease at the time. The vaccine protected against two strains of A virus and one strain of B virus. The quadravalent influenza vaccine will protect against an additional B strain (two strains of both the A and B viruses). However, the most important point is just to get vaccinated each year.
