G-Heath was a conglomerate of eight individual companies, including GBUAHN (Greater Buffalo United Accountable Healthcare Network). GBUAHN was an organization that assisted persons with Medicaid who had two or more chronic illnesses. The Health Home initiative was part of the Affordable Care Act and was designed to combat the Social Determinants of Health and minimize misuse, abuse, and duplication of services through care coordination for the ‘whole person.’ Mrs. Vazquez also co-founded and served as the practice administrator of Urban Family Practice, now known as Care Medical. UFP was a ‘State of the Art’ medical facility located on Buffalo’s west side, serving over 14,000 patients annually.

She has served on various committees and boards, including Visit Buffalo/Niagara, the Buffalo/Niagara Convention Center, and the Western New York Women’s Foundation. She is currently a trustee of Medaille University, Shea’s Performing Arts Center, and the Buffalo Zoo. Mrs. Vazquez also served as a member of the Higher Heights Founders Circle. Higher Heights sought to elevate the voices of women of color in an attempt to shape and advance progressive policies and politics.
