Calling for Volunteer Facilitators

Space is still available to volunteer as a facilitator for group training sessions for students in health care and medical fields.

No medical experience is needed.

Pharmacy, medical assisting, nursing, physician and public health students from Linn-Benton Community College, Comp-NW Medical School and Oregon State University meet during the year 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.

A free information session and 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.

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 information training session, contact Estelle Henderson at 541-917-4939, or email estelle.henderson@linnbenton.edu
