On Friday, June 17, 2022, Kaleida Health hosted its second annual Juneteenth celebration event on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus across from Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute and Oishei Children’s Hospital. The event, commemorating the end of slavery in the United States, brought together the local health care community, elected officials, representatives from community agencies and nearby neighborhood block clubs.
This year’s event, held in the wake of the racially-motivated mass shooting at Tops supermarket on Jefferson Avenue last month served as a way to honor the victims and their families and unite our neighbors throughout Western New York against the epidemics of racism and gun violence.
