On Monday, all 33 Paramedic Program students visited the University at Buffalo's Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences Cadaver Lab. At the lab, they practiced their skills, including intubations, on cadavers generously donated through the UB Anatomical Gift Program. I want to thank Dr. Brian Clemency for setting up this opportunity and having one of his residents, Dr. Seth Butler, attend. Additionally, many volunteers were there to help with skills, including Dr. Cammarata, the paramedic program medical director; Brian Wilcox, Kelsey Mattison, Levi Wolfe, and Mike Powell of ALSTAR; Kaylee Bailey, a Respiratory Therapist at UPMC; Tom Sampson of Mercy Flight, Brad Sprague and Ben Kasper of Oishei Children's Hospital; and Todd Reisner of Trans Am. Everyone involved made sure the students had a great experience!
Speed Networking Event
Alicia and I attended a Speed Networking Event at Chautauqua Harbor Hotel sponsored by Chautauqua Health Network and United Way of Southern Chautauqua County. This event was part of the work on the HRSA award that established the Southern Tier Health Workforce Excellence Partnership that we are involved with. It was a great event that allowed care coordinators throughout Chautauqua County to connect with others who share a passion for improving healthcare and gain knowledge for better referrals for patients and clients.
