In The Community (Upcoming Events)

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 beth.jansa@dekalbmedical.org. Please call 404-501-7481, if you have questions.
