Dear Editor:

Last weekend, I sponsored my annual Family Health Fair at the Amherst Senior Center. Over 80 providers offered their health services and information to more than 800 residents, an attendance record since I started sponsoring this event.

Around 250 glucose and cholesterol screenings were conducted; 145 retina scans; 85 skin cancer screenings and bone density heel scans; and 78 residents were given a PSA test. Most importantly, 800 residents learned more about their health!

I would like to publicly recognize and thank the Amherst Senior Center and all of its volunteers and staff, Kaleida Health, and every single health provider for taking time on a Saturday morning to improve the health of so many residents in our community!

I am excited to partner with so many dedicated organizations again next year for the 2014 Family Health Fair!


Michael H. Ranzenhofer


State Senator – 61st District
