CHA Steering Committee Meeting
On Wednesday morning, I attended the Kick-off meeting for Community Health Assessment Steering Committee for Cattaraugus County. It is hard to believe it has already been three years since the last CHA/CHIP was completed! This effort is once again being led by Cattaraugus County Health Department and Olean General Hospital. I am looking forward to continuing to work with this group as they put together the 2022 report.
COVID Vaccine Roundtable: Discussion and Q&A for EMS Providers
In partnership with the University at Buffalo's Family Medicine Residency Rural Track, Olean General Hospital, and Universal Primary Care, we hosted a conversation regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, specifically for EMS. This roundtable included: Dr. Christina Roosa, Associate Program Director; Dr. Ravi Purushuttam, Universal Primary Care Core Faculty, and current Resident Physicians: Dr. Philip Fourie, Dr. Anh Phan, Dr. Afza Safeer, and Dr. Kuldesh Ubhi.
EMS Providers from the three counties were given an opportunity to ask questions about COVID-19 and the vaccinations that are available. Some great questions and discussions occurred, and it was very beneficial for the EMS providers in attendance. I want to thank all the physicians who volunteered to speak with our providers, and we look forward to future educational opportunities!
