Mount Mercy's Academy of Science & Healthcare in the Community

“Let’s Not Meet By Accident” Program
On Tuesday October 2, 2012, Mount Mercy Academy’s Senior Health class visited Erie County Medical Center to participate in the “Let’s Not Meet by Accident” program. This program is a reality based trauma prevention/alcohol education program for teens who are new drivers. It is presented by the Emergency and Trauma Departments in hospitals across the state.

Participants learn that traumatic injuries claim the lives of more Americans under age 44 than AIDS, cancer and heart disease combined. Physicians and nurses who are confronted every day with the tragic aftermath of drinking and driving emphasize the fact that alcohol and drugs are a factor in 70 percent of all traffic deaths in the United States. During their visit, Mercy students visit the trauma resuscitation room-where accident victims are treated and the ambulance bay-where ambulances arrive carrying accident victims.

Funding Obtained for Great Lakes Restoration Initiative

A Statement Released by the Office of Congresswoman Kathy Hochul (D-26th District)

WESTERN NEW YORK – Today, Representatives Brian Higgins (NY-27), and Kathy Hochul (NY-26) announced $1.4 million in Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) grants awarded through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.  Recipients such as the Research Foundation of SUNY-Buffalo State College will use the funds to address invasive species in New York State. 

“The Great Lakes is an underappreciated regional and national asset which contributes significantly to our economy and environment,” said Congressman Higgins, a member of the Congressional Great Lakes Caucus.  “According to the Brookings Institution, Buffalo alone would see economic gains between $600 million to $1.1 billion if the Great Lakes are restored.  Investments like these move us closer to that goal.”
