health-advocateIf you’ve ever felt overwhelmed before or after a medical appointment, our volunteers in the Health Advocate Program* are ready to help. A volunteer who is comfortable with health care instructions can help you prepare for and attend your medical appointment. After the appointment, your health advocate will review instructions with you. The goal is to be sure that you understand medical information to remain healthy and safe. If you would like to become a client and receive volunteer assistance, please contact the Volunteer Services Manager.
