If you are a medical doctor, nurse, or other licensed or certified health professional, we need you. We appreciate medical providers who have experience diagnosing or treating breast cancer, but we also appreciate any other medical providers because we have dozens of providers giving all types of services during the Health Fair.
We would like to talk with you about your specific experience and what you could potentially provide to the Health Fair. We have a form for you to provide us with basic information about your background and interest, but also feel free to call or email us with any specific questions. Fill out the Medical Provider Volunteer Form.
Most of our Health Fair Volunteers are not medical providers, but play an important role in helping our organization to host the hundreds of Latinos who come to the fair. You do not need to have medical expertise or speak Spanish (though we appreciate and can use both those skills). What we need from everyone is a willing attitude and heart for helping others.
Below are the specific description for non-medical volunteers. Once you decide on one (or more) assignments, please fill in the Volunteer Form (below) and return it to us. If you have any questions, please call or email us, we would like to help you help us.
Setup and Cleanup – We need helpers to help set up at 7AM and to close down at 5 PM. Also, there is a need for ongoing cleanup. Not necessary to speak Spanish.
Ambassador – Ambassadors assist women in finding out how to get to their scheduled appointments and in general should provide guidance about where things are at the health festival. They should be thoroughly familiar with the maps and be ready to explain how to get to the various vans (area 1) and examining rooms (area 2). Most scheduled appointments will be in one of those two areas. Ambassadors should be stationed near the registration area and should proactively seek out the women after they have been assigned their appointments. If there are more than 2 ambassadors available, others may want to station themselves around the vans and inside the hospital. Spanish necessary.
Registration – Fill out registration forms for people seeking services. People at registration should be bilingual (English and Spanish) in order to be able to fill out the registration forms.
Pre-Registration – Same as Registration but takes place on various weekends before the actual day of the event. Fill out registration forms for people seeking services. People at registration should be bilingual (English and Spanish) in order to be able to fill out the registration forms.
Volunteer Registration - Sign in Volunteers and ask them to fill out a registration form if they haven’t already. Direct volunteers to their assignment. If they haven't been assigned, determine where they might help out the best. Spanish is not necessary.
Registration/Interpreters for Mobile Health Services – Two registration/interpreters will be stationed in front of each mobile van and will be in charge of helping to screen the women based on the eligibility criteria to determine whether the women are eligible for services at that van. Availability of services will be limited by the number of slots available at each van and eligibility criteria. Bilingual a Must!
Clerical Support – Help enter data and information into computer files and other clerical duties that may be needed. Spanish is not necessary.
Interpreters – Interpreters are needed in exam roomsand to assist in general interpreting activities. Bilingual only.
Children's Activities – This job entails keeping children busy with face painting, basketball, and the moon walk. No children should be left unattended by their parents or family members. Make sure that small children do not pick up balloons which have popped, as these can be a choking hazard. Spanish is not necessary.
Make-Up – Those with skills in doing make-up, hair, nails, etc., are needed for this booth. Spanish not necessary.
Food Services - Help serve food to volunteer healthcare providers. Spanish is not necessary.
Runners/Floaters/Parking – We need people to run errands and to check on whether the fiesta is running smoothly. It is your job to check with the providers in the vans to see whether they need added assistance or whether they anticipate that they can no longer see more women. Parking Attendants are needed. Spanish is not necessary.
