Students needed to volunteer at health fair
Posted on September 28, 2012
Student volunteers are sought to help at the sixth annual Free Health Fair, sponsored by the Asian Center and set for October 20 in Grand Rapids.
Rosa Luo, a graduate student majoring in biostatistics, is in charge of recruiting volunteers for the event. “We want to have 30 volunteers for each day,” said Luo. “Saturday is the event, but on Friday we need to set up the tables and collect the chairs.”
The health fair provides free basic medical services to people without health insurance. Grand Valley’s Kirkhof College of Nursing is among the sponsors of the event.
Luo said there are many volunteer jobs available, including set up and tear down, photography and visual/audio assistance.
“We have different volunteer jobs like greeting people and handing out forms,” said Luo. “We need interpreters to translate because some of the people are not very good at English.”
The fair will run from 9 a.m.-noon, October 20, at the Centerpointe Mall, 3665 28th St. in Grand Rapids. For more information or to volunteer, send Luo an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (616) 301-3987.
