Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center’s summer teen volunteer program has been so successful the hospital’s staff decided to extend the program to provide year-round volunteer opportunities to local youth.

“During the summer, we had many teens filling various daytime shifts throughout Banner Del E. Webb. As the summer came to a close, teens were excited to find that they would have an opportunity to continue volunteering into the school year.” said Charlotte Confer, volunteer coordinator at the hospital.

Banner Del E. Webb hosted 57 teen volunteers, who gave more than 3,300 hours at the nonprofit hospital this summer. Teens volunteered in 35 different assignments through Banner Del E. Webb.

When teen volunteers Julie Mattes and Brianna Johnson thought about what they wanted to do over the summer, they did not have the typical teenage recreational activities in mind. The two teens wanted a chance to get up close and personal with what could be their future careers.

“I want to go into the medical field so I wanted to get the experience,” Mattes said.

She and Johnson served in a number of positions, from coffee shop runner to operating room and ICU assistants.

“I began volunteering in the OR, and when I could not find a summer job I decided to also pick up volunteer hours delivering coffee,” Mattes said.

“I loved working in surgery, but I do not think I would pursue work in the ICU,” Johnson said.  

“We are excited to already have more than 30 teens who have joined the year-round teen volunteer program at Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center and who are already serving in various weekly assignments on evenings and weekends during the school year.” Confer said.  

If you know of teens who may be interested in obtaining more information or applying for the volunteer program have them email charlotte.confer@bannerhealth.com.

    Info Berita: Salah satu cara hamil anak perempuan adalah dengan
    berhubungan intim sekitar 3 hari sebelum masa ovulasi (masa di mana sel telur
    dilepaskan, siap untuk dibuahi). Info Tips : Alasannya sederhana saja, sel sperma X
    (pembawa sifat perempuan) dapat bertahan hidup lebih lama dibandingkan sperma Y
    (pembawa sifat laki-laki), dengan kata lain saat tiba waktunya ovulasi,

    Probably this program would inspire students to build a career in this field. They could become family medicine expert or could become cosmetic dentist in St. Louis. The medical field offers many opportunities which they should be aware of.

    If the youth could get the opportunity to take part in this program throughout the year then it would be a big help for them. After finishing their medical education they should do an internship at a reputed clinic like Comprehensive Medical Care, PC. Here they would gain valuable knowledge and experience.

    Teens who are considering having a career opportunity in the field of healthcare, they should consider undergoing such volunteer program. However, another good career choice would be becoming a fitness expert, you can work as personal trainer and later you can also launch your very own fitness center. However, before launching your business you need to have the right guidance, for that you have to access http://theresourcegroupcorp.com/free-consultation where you can find free consultation.

    The teens are indeed learning some really good things about this field which would help them in the long run. They should now take advantage of the opportunity which is being offered to them. These days any kind of healthcare facility could be accessed online. For example, you can find Mountcastle Vein Treatment Centers online at Mountcastleveincenters.com/.

    These teens are enthusiastic about this program, they are learning so many valuable things here. They should use the summer vacation time to do some volunteer work at other places like A.G. Rhodes Health & Rehab Cobb which offers rehab services to the seniors. This rehab facility could be found at http://www.agrhodes.org/.

    These teens should take advantage of the opportunity they are getting here through this volunteer program. They should learn the essential things about healthcare service after which they might feel inspired to study medicine and join a reputed healthcare facility like CyFair Medical Partners later. This healthcare clinic is also accessible online at http://cyfairmedicalpartners.com.

    There should be more volunteer programs available for the teens which would help them be more familiar with this sector. The field of healthcare is full of opportunities now. Many new approaches are being taken by doctors to offer a better treatment to patients, for example, Dr. Bryan MD uses motivational interviewing for his patients, he could be approached at http://drbryanmd.com/motivational-interviewing/.

    For the local youth it was indeed a great opportunity where they gained valuable experience. The center should continue to offer this program in future as well. However, now accessing a healthcare center has become easier online, if you want dental care facility then you can find it online at Newteethnow.com/.

    For this teen volunteers having access to such a program could be immensely beneficial. They could learn so much and could also utilize this opportunity to gain more experience. However, now one can find the information they need about healthcare services online, for instance, a LASIK qualified candidate can find the LASIK procedure related information online.

    They are doing the right thing by providing this unique opportunity to the students. However, now any healthcare facility could be accessed online including ones which offer a special service. For instance, if you need a plastic surgery facility in Des Moines, you can find that at http://www.gregganskemd.com/.
