Opioid Dependency and Pregnancy
STHCS Prevention Coordinator Jeff Ciminesi attended an Opioid Dependence and Pregnancy workshop presented by Davina Moss-King, Ph.D Tuesday at UPMC Chautauqua WCA Hospital in Jamestown. Her presentation provided an overview of screening and treatment options for pregnant women who are using opioids. She also discussed ways to support mothers with opioid use disorder throughout the pre-natal and post-natal periods. The importance of coordinating services to improve outcomes for both the mother and her baby was stressed. Dr. Moss-King is a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. We are planning a training soon to help medical providers identify patients with opioid use disorder and ensure they receive the evidence-based treatment services they need. The workshop was sponsored by UPMC Chautauqua, the Blackwell Chapel Baby Cafe' and Chautauqua Alcohol and Substance Abuse Council (CASAC).
NY Gives Day/Ambulance Simulator
I’m very happy to report that on November 28 we are participating in NY Gives Day to help raise money for an ambulance simulator for our new training center. NY Gives Day is an online fundraising push that coincides with Giving Tuesday, a nationwide day of giving following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Our fundraising site, STHCS NY Gives Day, is hosted by the nonprofit giving platform GiveGab. The ambulance simulator will enable EMS providers to learn how to care for patients within the confines of a fully-stocked ambulance. Please consider visiting STHCS NY Gives Day and making a donation. Seconds count in any medical emergency and training can mean the difference between life and death. NY Gives Day is designed to build on the focus of Giving Tuesday to engage nonprofits across New York State to participate. We signed up for NY Gives Day after attending a presentation about Gives Day during the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation’s Nonprofit Networking Day. We are one of 35 nonprofit organizations in Cattaraugus County participating in NY Gives Day.
