St. Bonaventure University's Wellness Center is hosting an ASIST Training FREE of charge for 28 individuals on September 5th and 6th. We are offering this training to school staff and to community service professionals who work in Cattaraugus County. If you are interested in attending this wonderful training, please contact Christopher Anderson, LMHC at St. Bonaventure University at 375-2310 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety.

Studies show that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings in those at risk and is a cost-effective way to help address the problem of suicide.

We are excited to celebrate at our Olean Base next week Thursday, August 30th at noon, as we unveil our new Bell 429 to the community. We invite you to join us, if you are able to attend our event.
I ask that you please RSVP to me, as we need a ballpark head count to ensure that we have enough refreshments. I also ask that you help us spread the word about this event with your contacts in the southern tier region, Olean territory. I appreciate all of your help with this!
Stay tuned for a ceremony in Springville in September, and a grand reveal of all helicopters in Buffalo…coming soon!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today took additional action to mitigate shortages of EpiPen (epinephrine) auto-injector by extending the expiration date of specific lots of 0.3 milligram products marketed by Mylan by four months beyond the labeled expiration date. This change beyond the approved 20-month shelf life is based on stability data provided by Mylan and reviewed by the FDA. To help ensure patient safety, these products, which already have been dispensed to patients, should have been — and should continue to be — stored as labeled.
