AHEC Spotlight

Now Recruiting for the
Near-to-Peer Program!

The Near-to-Peer Program seeks to better understand the barriers to workforce development and education faced by young adults in underserved Buffalo communities. This will be achieved via Community Needs Assessments (CNAs), which identify the strengths and assets within a community.

As a Near-to-Peer participant, you will be paid to learn about CNAs, then facilitate them yourself. You will also receive guidance and training to become a qualified candidate for a variety of professional opportunities.

In short, you will obtain professional experience and one-on-one guidance all while helping improve your community!

We are accepting applications until 10/15.

Special Projects: Maternal Health

Erie Niagara AHEC in collaboration with the Erie County Doula Task Force is working to address the maternal health disparities seen within Black/African American women in Erie County. Together, we aim to enhance the impact of the New York State Doula Pilot Program, in which Medicaid-eligible pregnant women can receive doula services at no out-of-pocket cost.
