As part of our work on the HRSA award that established the Southern Tier Health Workforce Excellence Partnership, I met with Christine Schuyler and Kathleen Martel of SUNY JCC this week to discuss our plans for addressing the workforce shortages in the Southern Tier. I will also meet today with Kylea Andreano, the Community Health Grants Manager of Chautauqua Health Network (CHN), to plan for the three years of this award. CHN and SUNY JCC lead the Southern Tier Health Workforce Excellence Partnership, and we look forward to this collaboration.
Paramedic Program Orientation
This week, orientation sessions were held at all 3 locations for the paramedic program. This was an opportunity for the students to get familiar with the location they would be attending, meet with the instructors, and learn about the program’s expectations over the next 14 months. We are excited for these 34 individuals taking this next step in their EMS careers to become paramedics and wish them all the best of luck!
