Univera Thanks Healthcare Workers

Although the 181st Erie County Fair has been postponed until next year, one of the tastes of the fair will soon be available.  Flying Bison Brewing Company and the Erie County Agricultural Society have teamed up for “FairTastic Lemon Strawberry Ale.”  Limited edition six packs of the brew will be available through Try-It Distributing at Buffalo area Tops Friendly Markets and 17 Western New York locations of Consumer’s Beverages beginning the week of June 29th.

Amazon’s new delivery station in Tonawanda officially opens this week.  The delivery station will create more than 600 full-time and part-time associate jobs.

UB's School of Nursing has received a $1.5 million grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration.  The grant will help increase access to mental health and substance abuse treatment by integrating care in nurse-led primary care clinics in rural and medically underserved areas in Western New York.

“Thank you Healthcare Heroes” is the message 500 Univera Healthcare employees are sending health care workers across Western New York who are on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic.  That message is on display on the health plan’s prime frontage along the I-290 at Main Street in Williamsville.
