LBCC Call for Volunteer Facilitators

Volunteers are needed to facilitate small group training sessions for students in varied health care and medical fields. No medical experience needed.

A free information session and facilitator training will be held Thursday, Sept. 24 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at LBCC’s Vineyard Mt. Room, Calapooia Center, room 213, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.

Health care students in the fields of pharmacy, medical assisting, nursing, physician and public health from Linn-Benton Community College, Comp-NW Medical School and Oregon State University will meet in small, interdisciplinary group sessions to work on communications skills.

Volunteer facilitators help guide the students through real-life case scenarios during each session. Sessions are designed to help students communicate and work together across their varied medical disciplines.

Facilitators should be prepared to commit to approximately 15 hours of volunteer time during the sessions, which will be held October 2015 through April 2016 at LBCC’s Albany campus.

For more information or to register for the free information training session, contact Estelle Henderson at 541-917-4939, or email estelle.henderson@linnbenton.edu.
