Medical campus leaders to discuss the future of health care in WNY

Published May 3, 2018

A panel discussion with leaders of the major Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) institutions is among the highlights of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences’ annual Reunion Weekend/Spring Clinical Day on May 5.

The discussion, which is free and open to the public, will take place at 9:30 a.m. in the M&T Bank Auditorium, Room 2120 of the Jacobs School, 955 Main Street, Buffalo.

Michael E. Cain, vice president for health sciences and dean of the Jacobs School, will serve as keynote speaker for the discussion, titled “Boldly Transforming Western New York’s Health.” Also speaking are Matthew Enstice, president and CEO of the BNMC; Kevin Gibbons, executive director of UBMD Physicians’ Group and senior associate dean for clinical affairs at the Jacobs School; Candace Johnson, president and CEO of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center; and Jody Lomeo, president and CEO of Kaleida Health.

The discussion will focus on the strengthening collaborations among BNMC organizations focused on medical education, research and top-notch clinical care, now that the Jacobs School has moved downtown.

This will be the first chance that many alumni of the Jacobs School and community members will have to see and tour the new medical school building. A tour will begin at 11 a.m., following the panel discussion.

Reunion Weekend/Spring Clinical Day is held every year to inform alumni and friends, as well as faculty, staff and students, about what’s new at the Jacobs School.
