Health system looks for education help
Southeast Georgia Health System is seeking adult volunteers for its soon to be completed Center for Education Development.

Kristin Doll, director of volunteer services, says the center on U.S. 17 should be completed by the end of August, and volunteers will be needed to help with the program.

"This is the first time we've had something like this, so, of course, it's still developing," Doll said. "We're really excited to have this facility available and to be able to offer this opportunity."

The center will feature a whole family of mannequins and become one of the larger hospital-based simulation centers in a four-state area, according to the health system.

The mannequins are considered the most highly evolved human patient simulators available for hands-on learning.

"Those with a health care or teaching background may be really interested in the opportunity," Doll said. "We'll need people to assist with scenarios and provide help with training."

Volunteers are also needed to help prepare education packets, tours, greet guests and more.

Volunteers should begin around late August or early September, Doll said. They are needed weekdays in one of two daily shifts - 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.

"We look for really one, four-hour shift a week," Doll said. "Sometimes we get people who really enjoy it, and then we try to get them more volunteer hours."

Volunteers will be required to attend a mandatory orientation and occasional meetings, Doll said.
