HWI Young Professional Spotlight

Emma Concannon, North Forest Office Space

Emma Concannon

Why were you interested in helping HWI?

I was interested in helping HWI because I am passionate about volunteering in my community and I really value cultivating connections with other young professionals. I’ve also always had an interest in science and the medical community, particularly here in Buffalo as we boast such a wonderful medical campus which includes HWI.

Why does research matter to you?

Research matters to me because it can have a significant impact on the quality or length of someone’s life – whether that means finding a cure, alleviating symptoms, or the overall wellness of a community. While it is not my inherent personality to be data driven, I’ve learned how important that it and research is in making well informed decisions in business, life, health, and more.
