1. Student Run Homeless Clinics (L3s and L4s)
Hey L3s and L4s,
Every year, the LSU Student Run Homeless Clinics rely on third and fourth year medical students to operate. If you’d like to volunteer, please use this link to sign up. Our primary concern right now is scheduling volunteers for this week, however you can go ahead and sign up for any of our remaining clinics this semester if you’d like. You do NOT have to have previously volunteered at either of the SRHCs to volunteer now.
2. Cancer Resource Room Volunteer Opportunity
The Cancer Resource Room at Interim LSU Hospital is open and looking for volunteers! The CRR provides information about cancer to patients (both inpatient and outpatient). The room has two computers to see online cancer information and the room is well-stocked with pamphlets and brochures on a wide range of cancer topics.
If interested in volunteering please send me an email so I can answer any questions you have and you can sign up using this link (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkyTbsOh2SJ5dGRral9KSmpDUWVOc0s2RjZYcmdEekE#gid=9)
All volunteer hours are given CSE credit.
