Kuemper Grad takes on cancer at University of iowa


Nepple and family visit Kuemper Catholic schools in April

Dr. Ken Nepple is a urology specialist at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.
   Dr. Ken Nepple graduated from Kuemper in 1996. Nepple recently was the keynote speaker for the Carroll County Relay for Life kick off.

 Dr. Nepple has worked and done extensive research cancer and treatments.  “For me, the reality is that there’s not a cure for cancer,”
Nepple said. “There’s not going to be a cure for all cancers. It’s not going to happen anytime soon. But what can you do to help fund research that helps
one more researcher, who can help one more patient?”  Nepple said in his speech in Carroll.  Nepple comes from a long line of Kuemper grads.  He has a brother and sister - both Kuemper grads as well as his parents' Ray '65 and Marlene (Berhens '68) Nepple.
