CBO Kick-Off Meeting
Healthy Community Alliance (HCA), as the lead for the Upstate New York Community-Based Organization (CBO) Consortium planning grant, held a kick-off meeting for the Western region CBO last week. Grant goals were reviewed, including identifying and engaging CBOs in the specific targeted areas that remain unserved/underserved as part of the DSRIP Program. The overall goal is to improve engaged CBOs’ abilities to analyze business requirements and to successfully formulate a business strategy and proposition for engaging in DSRIP objectives.
 
STHCS will be a co-lead for Allegany and Cattaraugus counties. We’re looking forward to promoting a collaborative environment to improve overall health outcomes. This NYS Department of Health program will provide technical assistance and educational opportunities to smaller CBOs. Discussion has also included participants moving toward a value-based payment system. If your agency is interested in participating or finding our more information, contact me at dkahm@sthcs.org or call (716) 372-0614.
Training Center a Hub for Activity
I’m happy to report our new Training Center is seeing a lot of traffic this year. Many programs, organizations and initiatives are utilizing our space for its distance-learning (DL) capacity and centralized access here at 150 North Union Street, Olean.
 
The Regional Paramedic Program is using our Training Center every week to connect 12 students here with 10 others at the ALSTAR EMS Training Center in Jamestown. In about a year, they will become certified Paramedics and bring lifesaving skills to our communities. Other upcoming sessions include a CPR training with Universal Primary Care (UPC) staff on Monday, Feb. 25. On Saturday and Sunday, March 2-3, the Center will hold a two-day International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) original training session for the Allegany County AEMT class. We will also host a Southern Tier Safety Night for Caregivers on Wednesday, April 17 in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association for WNY. If you’re interested in holding a session here, contact me at dkahm@sthcs.org or call (716) 372-0614.
