PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY WARNING!
Brooklyn, NY — The most common
method your doctor will recommend to treat
your neuropathy is with prescription drugs
that may temporarily reduce your symptoms.
These drugs have names such as Gabapentin,
Lyrica, Cymbalta, and Neurontin, and are
primarily antidepressant or anti-seizure
drugs. These drugs may cause you to feel
uncomfortable and have a variety of harmful

$1.2M to help high-skilled
immigrants find jobs
By Nelson A. King
In recognition of Immigrant Heritage
Month, the New York State Office for
New Americans (ONA) has announced
$1.1 million for the new Professional
Pathways for High-Skilled Immigrants
program to help new Americans find jobs
matched with their expertise.
In addition, ONA said it will also be
expanding its partnership with Albany-
CanCode, first announced in October
2020, with an additional commitment of
$100,000 to offer new basic digital literacy
classes and software training courses
through August 2022.
“These programs will help New York
respond to the post COVID-19 job market
by assisting new Americans to fully
utilize their potential and obtain meaningful
employment,” said ONA in a statement.
New York State Secretary of State
Rossana Rosado said, “Many immigrants
worked as essential workers throughout
the COVID-19 crisis, providing key services
for New Yorkers, and I can think
of no better way to honor immigrants
than by offering them the opportunity to
match their expertise with job placement
and increase their digital literacy skills.
“The new Professional Pathway program
for High-Skilled Immigrants will
help New York State build back better,
and is the latest example of New York’s
ongoing commitment to immigrant
empowerment and workforce development,”
ONA said the NYS Professional Pathways
program will enable high-skilled
immigrants overcome barriers to professional
development through the screening,
training and/or re-credentialing of
participants and the identification of job
placement opportunities for low-income
immigrants in the regions of the state
where this program is launching.
The organizations provisionally
awarded contracts under this program
will be working with ONA to coordinate
with employers and workforce development
boards in their regions to ensure
they are tapping into existing workforce
development initiatives that are working
to fill employment gaps, especially given
the change in employment skills and
needs as a result of COVID-19, according
The six regions and organizations
offering the program are: Bronx/Manhattan/
Staten Island — International
Rescue Committee; Brooklyn/Queens —
Upwardly Global; South Capital Region
— US Committee for Refugees and
Immigrants; Central NY — InterFaith
Mohawk Valley; and The Center Western
New York — International Institute
Upwardly Global, a national leader in
immigrant workforce development, will
serve as the lead agency.
In this role, ONA said Upwardly Global
will lead the statewide network of
ONA Job Coaches, and provide expert
guidance and technical assistance to the
program in different regions of the state.
“Over the last year, Upwardly Global
has continued to work very closely
with the New York State Office for New
Americans to invest in immigrants and
refugee job seekers,” said Jina Krause-
Vilmar, chief executive officer, Upwardly
Global. “This population is often invisibilized
and overlooked in public discourse.
These communities should be able to
restart their careers and rebuild their
lives in a way that enhances shared prosperity.”

be confused with laser therapy) using light
emitting diode technology. This technology
was originally developed by NASA to assist

plant. The light therapy will allow the blood
vessels to grow back around the peripheral
nerves and provide them with the proper
nutrients to heal and repair. It’s like adding
water to a plant an seeing the roots grow
deeper and deeper.
