G-Health Enterprises President and Chief Executive Officer Raul Vazquez served as keynote speaker for a conference on April 7, 2018 at Daemen College in Amherst entitled “Beyond Biology: Social Determinants in Health Promotion.” The conference was held during National Public Health Week and was attended by high school and college students interested in community-level health promotion, career exploration, and networking with community leaders.

Dr. Vazquez told the assembled crowd how the Greater Buffalo United Accountable Healthcare Network (GBUAHN) addresses the Social Determinants of Health and how GBUAHN is attacking barriers to health care through care coordination, and partnerships with organizations that provide needs such as food, housing, education, substance abuse treatment and more. Dr. Vazquez pointed out that oftentimes people don’t realize the desperate need for health care that exists in our own community.
