We were blessed with the volunteer labor of 336 individuals during 2017, who gave us 13,890 hours of service valued at $522,974. Our volunteer pool is representative of the population we serve, including members of many faiths, as well as beginning healthcare providers to tenured physicians and dentists.
More often than not, we receive more offers to volunteer than we can accommodate. Preference is given to those who are willing to volunteer at the clinic location where we may have the greatest need. Regarding volunteers who are matriculating students completing a clinical rotation at Good Sam Gwinnett, those opportunities are in high demand and often schedule more than six months in advance.
All volunteers must complete and submit the Volunteer Form found below. You may send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Primary Care and Specialty Physician: Provide medical care to uninsured patients.
