Safe Summer Bike Helmet Program
Safe Kids Southern Tier New York (SKSTNY) has kicked off our Safe Summer Bike Helmets program in Cattaraugus, Allegany, and Chautauqua Counties in 2022. Local police departments and EMS agencies will be giving children a free bicycle helmet if they are seen riding without one or reward them with a $5 Amazon gift card if they are seen wearing a helmet while riding. It is important to remember that kids should wear a helmet when riding a scooter, skating, skateboarding or biking. It is the single most effective safety device available to reduce head injury and death from bike crashes. If you know of someone who is in need of a helmet, contact Sydney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Caregiver Education & Resource Fair
Last week, The Alzheimer's Association of WNY hosted a Caregiver Education & Resource Fair at Southern Tier Health Care System. The event featured a presentation of "Understanding Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia" and caregiver related giveaways! I am glad that STHCS was able to make our training center available for this great event that benefits many individuals in the community. If you know of someone who needs caregiver navigation services, please have them contact Bethany at email@example.com.
