This week started our first cohort of the Southern Tier EMT-B Academy. This academy is supported by the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation and currently has eleven students enrolled in this class that meets every weekday. Students will be receiving clinical time at various locations such as ALSTAR, Trans Am, City of Olean Fire Department, Jamestown Fire Department, and Olean General Hospital. We are excited to be training many prospective EMTs!
Safe Sleep Expansion to Erie County
Through the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York CALL to Action program, BestSelf is looking to replicate our Cribs for Kids program. This program was initially developed due to my HFWCNY Health Leadership Fellows group project with Team Beethoven to address the unsafe sleep-related deaths that were being seen in our catchment area.
It is excellent that the Health Foundation supports the expansion of this initiative, and I look forward to seeing this project take off in Erie County!
