You don’t need to be a trained professional to be a vital part of the Healing California volunteer team. There are a variety of tasks that general volunteers can help out with at a clinic.

 

Because we are a healthcare organization, certain general volunteer roles are restricted to those with appropriate training. However, from setting up equipment to helping with patient registration, there’s a role for a variety of skill-sets within our clinics. There are a number of roles that do not require training or experience.
