Volunteer Highlights  

 

 

The Great Hospital Adventure

 gha16

UW student volunteers interact with students during the presentation.

This program allows volunteers to share health-related insight and enthusiasm with K-2nd grade students!  Volunteers present a 30 minute DVD and puppet show to the pre-school through 2nd graders and then have a quick fun and interactive Q & A session! The project teaches young children about the many different healthcare professionals that take care of sick or injured people.

How to get involved:

Fall-Into-Good-Health-Fair:

AHEC hosted an interactive pre-diabetes booth at past health fairs on the UW Campus.  Volunteers man the booth, answer questions, and try to recruit participants for UW’s Laramie Diabetes Prevention Program!  Donate an hour of your time to share wellness with the Laramie community in a high profile setting!

 

 

Laramie Diabetes Prevention Program:

Diabetes is quickly becoming a very serious health concern in Wyoming and throughout much of the U.S.  It is estimated that over 21% of the population in Wyoming is considered “pre-diabetic.”    CHAP is working with Ivinson Hospital to co-sponsor a diabetes prevention program.  3-4 volunteers are needed to assist with interviewing potential participants (pre-diabetics) and providing support during weekly meetings (this may include taking and recording blood pressure, weight, etc.).    CHAP students who volunteered with this program in the past had a great experience.

 

 

Laramie Reproductive Health:

HIV/AIDS testing/screening/support/counseling, thorough training provided.  Also if you have a specific skill you would like to lend to LRH, they have utilized the skill-sets of different volunteers in the past, for administration tasks, marketing materials, etc.
