UPCOMING POMS VOLUNTEER EVENTS
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AROUND PITTSBURGH
UPMC Shadyside Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP)
UMPC Shadyside Hospital is recruiting volunteers for the the Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP). HELP is a quality improvement program, staffed in part by trained volunteers who see inpatients during an assigned weekly shift for at least four hours each week. Volunteers receive extensive training about the hospital and the patients with whom we are trying to prevent delirium (confusion). HELP relies on volunteers who are compassionate, dependable, well-organized, and committed. This program requires a 125 hour commitment in 4-hour shifts once or twice per week. If interested, contact Mrs. F.D. Fields, Lead Volunteer Coordinator at 412-623-1158 or firstname.lastname@example.org All shifts for spring are FULL - recruiting for Summer and Fall only.
In the past POMS has held several tours at the WISER Center for the members to learn about the world-class research facilities and cutting-edge technologies that WISER offers. The WISER Center allows for students to volunteer and assist with the training of medical students. They are currently looking for volunteers over the summer. If interested in this wonderful opportunity, please contact the President of the WISER Center Volunteers, Drake Ma.
