The Buffalo News reports on UB medical school groundbreaking

Published October 15, 2013

An article on the front page of the Buffalo News reports on today’s ceremonial groundbreaking for the new UB medical school in downtown Buffalo. The article notes that when finished, the eight-story, $375 million building will be a key component of a long-sought vision to bring hospitals, research and doctor-training facilities to one location, and quotes UB President Satish K. Tripathi and Michael E. Cain, vice president for health sciences and dean of the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. A related article offers fast facts about the building. Today’s groundbreaking received wide coverage locally and around New York State, with articles also appearing in the Albany Times Union’s Capitol Confidential, WBEN-AM, Business First, WGRZ-TV, WIVB-TV, WKBW-TV and YNN.
