Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center recently hosted a Mentoring Day program for 35 diploma-bound students with disabilities. Students from Niagara and Genesee counties were paired with Memorial team members to explore a variety of healthcare careers with hospital departments providing hands-on projects, presentations, and information on how to pursue careers in those fields. 

A highlight of the day was an inspirational talk by former Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Ken Jones, who encouraged students to strive to achieve their future goals. 

The program was co-sponsored by Adult Career and Continuing Education Services-Vocational Rehabilitation (ACCES-VR), Community Services for Every 1, Erie 1 BOCES, Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, and People Inc. 

Cutline information: Students from Niagara Falls High School, Starpoint High School, Lockport High School, and Oakfield-Alabama Middle-High School learned about career choices available to them in the healthcare field during a recent Mentoring Day at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center and the Golisano Center for Community Health.
