CEO Update
Child Health and Safety Team
I want to thank the Health Foundation for Western & Central New York (HFWCNY) for awarding us a planning grant supporting the development of a full proposal to expand our current Child Health and Safety Team (CHST). This funding will help lay the groundwork to ensure the team is focusing on the vital community activities and educational programming. An earlier version of the team was required to prioritize certain activities and was prescriptive on who could be a member. Now we aim to convene a team with a fresh focus and expanded membership. It’ll be more inclusive of the professionals, services, parents, and other individuals involved in child health and development.

We were recently invited to join Safe Kids Worldwide, a global organization which would allow us access to a range of highly successful child-safety programs. I’ve been connecting with other Safe Kids coalitions to get their input on moving forward and to discuss possible initiatives. I’ll keep you posted on any new developments.

Leadership Cattaraugus
I’m proud to report Alicia Broadbent, our Director of Planning and Development, is attending Leadership Cattaraugus as a member of the Class of 2019. The program teaches skills necessary to be a leader in the workplace and community, as well as critical resources available within Cattaraugus County. Over the next 10 months, Alicia will be meeting regularly with over 16 of the area’s brightest young leaders. The cohort kicked off with a Leadership Retreat on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

Alicia began with us in 2014 as a student intern from St. Bonaventure University and has worked on many programs over the years. I’ve always been impressed with her willingness to take part in any of our programs, along with her ability to take charge of complex tasks. I’m confident she will be a shining star amongst the next generation of health care leadership.
