DeKalb Medical is excited to be a part of many upcoming festivals and
community events. These are wonderful opportunities to reach our target
audience and let the community know about our quality services.
Volunteers at the DeKalb Medical tent will assist with the Wellness
Prize Wheel and distribute hospital information. Our doctors are invited
to meet the public and/or offer blood pressure screenings. We need
several volunteers and doctors to cover each shift and maximize our
visibility so sign up with a co-worker. Volunteers receive a DeKalb
Medical t-shirt. Staff working on clinical ladders receive points for
representing the hospital at community events."
To volunteer, please email Beth Jansa, Community Outreach Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please call 404-501-7481, if you have questions.
