We continue to offer traditional community and worksite health fairs where we need staff support.
Volunteers come from all walks of life, age groups, backgrounds and interests. Volunteer opportunities include:
Office volunteers: client support, phones, mail, evaluations, tallies, supplies, pack/unpack events and more.
Meet and greet: Welcome people at events, share how to do paperwork.
Registration: Calculate/receive cash, card, checks; record on logs.
Blood pressure: Stethoscope/pressure cuffs or auto-cuffs (no experience needed).
Blood draw: Those with good skill sets and experience.
Processing/draw support: No medical background required, an attention to detail is.
Check out: Medical professionals (chat with clients).
Health education: Share health topic handouts and knowledge at exhibit tables.
Health screenings: Height/weight/BMI, bone density, vision, other screenings (trained by staff).
Food service: Prep, serve, cleanup - coffee, tea, snacks, meals (for longer events).
Set up/take down: Unpack, set up, prep events; break down and pack up.
Other categories: Event support generalist, publicity, and more (ask how you can help).
