Higgins Calls on Trump Administration to Protect Roswell Park’s Partnership with Cuba Lung Vaccine...

Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) expressed great concern that President Trump’s rollback of United States policies with Cuba implemented under President Obama that opened up new opportunities for trade, tourism and business relationships between the two nations may hurt the United States economy and threaten the future of promising cancer research underway at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. 

Higgins spoke out against the changed policy on the House Floor this week and sent a letter to the Treasury and Commerce Departments outlining the importance of protecting the unique relationship between Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York and the Center of Molecular Immunology in Havana, Cuba.  The partnership, only made possible after the previous Administration loosened restrictions for trade and investment in 2015, is allowing for a clinical trial, testing for the first time in the United States CIMAvax,  a lung-cancer vaccine giving advanced lung cancer patients new hope in the fight for their lives.

According to the Department of the Treasury, changes will not take place until the Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) issues new regulations consistent with the Administration’s executive order.  Congressman Higgins is stressing that policy will need to be crafted in a way that carves out this relationship given its humanitarian mission; otherwise Roswell Park’s work with CIMAvax could be at risk.

Below is the text of Congressman Higgins’ letter:

The Perfect Buffalo-Style Picnic

Pull out the coolers, grills and chairs. Make the rounds to Wegmans, Consumers and the nearest butcher shop. It’s picnic season, people!

Buffalo summers are some of the best around as our city is blessed with warm temps and cool lake breezes. Perfect weather is the first step in your picnic planning prep. After that, you need to focus your attention on the smaller, but wildly important, details. Your Buffalo-style picnic, no matter how large or small, need only be concerned about the four major components: LOCATION, FOOD, BEVERAGE & FUN.


Delaware Park – the crown jewel of Buffalo’s Olmsted parks system awaits. Post up at a picnic table (located near the basketball courts) or bring a blanket and pick a shady spot under a willow tree near Hoyt Lake for more of an intimate picnic for two.

Chestnut Ridge Park – this County Park is just a short 15-20 minute drive from downtown Buffalo. Reserve your shelter in advance or stop at the first picnic table you come across. Save time for a hike into the woods as you chart a course to the Eternal Flame!

Buffalo Harbor State Park – Buffalo’s newest state park is right on the water and boasts plentiful boat and birdwatching, inspiring sunsets, and a fun playground the kids will love!


Chiavetta’s chicken marinade, Sahlen’s Hot Dogs, Mineo & Sapio sausage. No description needed. Grab some Costanzo’s rolls, too.

Bison Dip – You pick the agent to consume the dip…chips, pretzels, veggies, your fingers. Whatever works.

Weber’s Mustard & Frank’s Hot Sauce – Similar to the Bison Dip, these can accompany just about anything.

Chicken Wings & Original Pizza Logs – If you have access to a portable deep fryer, then these are a must.


Beer – Grab a few cans of the local ale options from Big Ditch, 42 North and Resurgence.

Water – Be responsible, have a few brews and then make the switch.

Coffee – Fill a thermos with some Timmy Ho’s or some Public Espresso to perk up for the ride home.


Any variety of bag toss or washers game will work, but remember Buffalo invented your favorite frisbee flinging activity, Kan-Jam!

Football, baseball & mitts, badminton, volleyball, pack up those summer sport essentials and head out!
