I am happy to report that the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation
recently notified us that they have chosen to support our Southern Tier EMT-B Academy project. Through this project, we will recruit and train new EMS personnel to help bolster the EMS system in our catchment. To help overcome education barriers, the program will be provided at no cost to students. The students will also receive a stipend during their training that will allow them to concentrate on their training program without also having to work full-time.
Msgr. Gregory Mustaciuolo, Chief Executive Officer of the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation, stated, “As we set our sights on 2021, we must address the healthcare disparities related to race and income that have only been heightened since the onset of the pandemic. We honor the legacy of Mother Cabrini by funding activities, programs, and initiatives that help bridge gaps in health services, bolster the health outcomes of diverse communities, and eliminate barriers to care.”
Our organization is proud to be selected as a Mother Cabrini Health Foundation Grantee. We are thrilled by this opportunity to improve the health and wellness of our New York Community.
