Buffalo, NY (March 22, 2021) – Two local foundations and three health insurers have combined forces and funds to support the Population Health Collaborative’s (PHC) Live Well WNY initiative, a movement aimed at decreasing chronic disease in Western New York. The The John R. Oishei Foundation provided $125,000 which has been matched by a combination of donations from Highmark BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York, Independent Health, Univera Healthcare and the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.

Pandemic sparks bump in public health applications

“The pandemic has shown the world the value of public health,” says Jean Wactawski-Wende, dean of the School of Public Health and Health Professions, which has seen significant growth at both the undergraduate and graduate levels over the past several years. “The growth in our public health programs is clear evidence that young people are heeding the call to join this meaningful field.”

Undergraduate applications to the School of Public Health and Health Professions have jumped by 70% over last year.

NYS AHEC Seminar Series – -Continuing Education Events for Healthcare Providers

The New York State Area Health Education Center System - NYS AHEC will be hosting a continuing education seminar on Tuesday, April 13th from 9:00am-4:35pm via Zoom titled “The Ethics of Healthcare: A Discussion on the Importance of Quality care Provision.”

With the population of the nation becoming more ethnically and culturally diverse, it’s becoming increasingly important to have a representative workforce. Unfortunately, a lack of diversity in the healthcare workforce can produce significant disparities in care provision, leading to ethical concerns and increased healthcare costs. This seminar will highlight the unique and ethical challenges faced when providing healthcare for diverse individuals, and discuss evidence-based models in an effort to support improved access and quality of care. Early bird registration is open until April 2nd, with ticket costs at $70 for health professionals and $15 for students.

WNY vaccine rollout already blunting the impact of Covid-19

The share of the regional population that has immunity to Covid-19, whether through the vaccine or by fighting off the disease, is growing rapidly as the rollout accelerates.

Deep-rooted structural racism, and more recently the COVID-19 pandemic, have exacerbated inequities within our food system. Millions of people—mostly Black and Latino families—have gone hungry in the past year while high obesity rates put many at risk for severe COVID-19 complications. Grocery store clerks, meat packing plant staff, and farm workers making low wages have struggled financially while risking their health to feed our country.

We need a more sustainable and resilient food system that advances health, racial and economic equity—one where people have control over what they eat, where it's from, and how it's grown.

From Brazil to Malawi, communities around the world are building better food systems that are rooted in equity and aim to prevent hunger, improve health and well-being for all, and protect our planet.

What can you learn from these countries as you work to improve health in your community?

Join us on March 5, 2021, at 1:30 p.m. ET for our webinar Reimagined in America: Advancing Food Justice to hear:

What's needed to create a more equitable and sustainable food system
How communities around the world are fostering food sovereignty
What steps U.S. communities can take to transform their food systems

Regular physical activity is recommended at all ages for health and well-being. Healthy levels of physical activity are especially relevant in an aging society where opportunities for prolonged sedentary behavior are abundant. Walking is an activity that most adults can engage that requires no specialized equipment or facility memberships.

Public health researchers at The University at Buffalo have led several recent studies on the health benefits of physical activity, including walking specifically, in the national Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) program which is a study aimed at understanding factors related to healthy aging in postmenopausal women. This presentation will review findings from the WHI to illustrate the positive health effects of walking activity.
