Linda Yu Bien Volunteer Program

We are looking for college students who are interested in pursuing a health-related career for our Linda Yu Bien Volunteer Program. The goal of the program is to expose students to the dynamic environment of a community health center so that they can better understand how health care is delivered to an underserved population. Volunteers will receive trainings from NEMS Health Education Department on how to improve communication skills in a health care setting and learn how to deliver culturally competent health education messages.
