CEO Update
EMS Alzheimer’s Disease Education
Representatives of UB’s Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease in WNY (CEAD-WNY) met with myself and our STEMS Coordinator Alicia Broadbent to discuss EMS training opportunities. I’m very happy to report that the CEAD-WNY will present a training at our upcoming 12th-Annual STEMS Spring Training in March. The training is designed to help EMS providers communicate with patients who have dementia or Alzheimer’s and also their family members and caregivers. As the population ages, EMS providers are increasingly helping patients with dementia and Alzheimer's. The CEAD-WNY will also be providing additional trainings for medical providers and the community at our new Southern Tier Health Care System Training Center. I want to thank CEAD-WNY representatives Dr. Linda Steeg, DNP, RN, ANP-BC; Mark Ramos, LMSW, Community Outreach Social Worker; and Leilani Pelletier, Program Director, for meeting with us.
New Building
I’m excited to report that we’ve moved into our new building at 150 North Union Street in downtown Olean. While we are still moving a few odds and ends into the building, all our telephone and data lines have been switched over and we’re working out of our new home. The new Training Center, which is the heart of the building, has been used for more than a dozen trainings and presentations in the last month alone. Most recently we held an evening Regional Paramedic Program faculty meeting in the building. Instead of sitting in the large training room, paramedic faculty members chose to sit around the island in the center of the kitchen, next to the Training Center room. The less-formal space contributed to a very productive meeting and encouraged everyone to share their ideas. I want to thank members of the Board of Directors for creating a facility that will benefit the community for many years to come. If you have a meeting or a training you would like to host at our facility, please contact us.
