Welcome to Erie Niagara Area Health Education Center, Inc.

October, 2015


No seriously, we want you to consider your answer to this question.  Many of us spend so much time taking care of others that we forget to care of ourselves. How on earth can you take care of anyone if you're the one sick? So, how about giving yourself some "me time" and really giving some thought to what you want to do to take better care of YOU?


Fall marks the beginning of a new season and it's a great time to consider how you are feeling. Ask yourself when the last time you visited your primary care doctor, and if it's been a while- what's the reason? Consider what you would like to know about your health, what's that one thing that you want to know more about? 


We are going to devote this space to You and Your Health, we will be sharing some information about what to ask your health care team, and how to live a less stress-free life -notice we did'nt say stress-less, we keep it real here :)


                Today is... A perfect day to start taking care of yourself!

The project which is a partnership with the University of Buffalo, the National Science Foundation and the Area Health Education Center offers students at local high schools the chance to study the marine bacterium Kytococcus sedentarius, thanks to a $1.1 million National Science Foundation grant to the University at Buffalo. Stephen Koury, PhD, and his colleagues in the UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, received the grant to educate regional high school teachers and recruit high school students to pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields. The new program focuses on bioinformatics, an interdisciplinary field that uses software tools to store, retrieve, organize and analyze biologic information.

Bioinformatics is a field of rapid growth that provides tools for better health care through improvement in prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Koury, research assistant professor in the Department of Biotechnical and Clinical Laboratory Sciences, notes that new jobs on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus will likely require training in biotechnology and bioinformatics; the new program will provide a pipeline for educator and student recruitment, training and mentorship in STEM fields at the high school level. “For us to be successful, we need to create the environment where children not only want to get involved, but want to stay in Buffalo,” says Norma Nowak, “This needs to be the spark that lights the fire.” Over the next three years, the grant will allow 450 high school students and 90 teachers to conduct and present scientific research in bioinformatics. The program will involve educators and students from 13 counties, including Niagara, Erie, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Wyoming, Genesee, Orleans, Monroe, Livingston, Allegany, Ontario, Wayne and Steuben.
