USDA RUS Distance Learning Technology Grant
I’m pleased to report that STHCS was awarded a $132,899 USDA Rural Utilities Service Distance Learning and Telemedicine Grant. The funding from this grant will allow STHCS to build a state-of-the art distance learning center at our new building. STHCS will serve as the hub for the interactive distance learning equipment and the Allegany Indian Reservation Volunteer Fire Department, Cuba Ambulance Service, Franklinville Fire Department and Gerry Volunteer Fire Department will serve as new end-user sites. Each of these sites will be provided with equipment for distance learning trainings.
Preparation for this opportunity started two years ago and we are honored to have been selected for this highly competitive grant. We look forward to working with the Allegany Indian Reservation Volunteer Fire Department, Cuba Ambulance Service, Franklinville Fire Department and Gerry Volunteer Fire Department to implement this grant and build the capacity for distance learning and EMS training in our region.
Rural Recruitment and Retention
New York State will be the featured member on 3RNet, a national rural recruitment and retention website, from January 29 – February 4. 3RNet is a nonprofit job board that works to connect health care professionals with job opportunities in rural and underserved areas. Next week, job opportunities in New York State will be featured on the homepage of the website and on 3RNet’s social media platforms. I want to encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity and post any available jobs at your organization to the 3RNet website. Registration is simple and completely free. Once registered, your agency will gain access to over 53,000 job seeking candidates. I want to thank the NYS Charles D. Cook Office of Rural Health for making this opportunity available to health care providers in our area.
