Children's of Alabama

Volunteer

June - July 2019 • Birmingham, AL

What I liked

I enjoyed spending time talking to children and helping them feel at ease in a stressful medical environment. I also felt appreciated by the staff that I worked with, and I believe that I improved the overall productivity of the Allergy, Immunology, and Rheumatology Clinic.

What I wish was different

The AIR Clinic was not my first choice to work in, but I still enjoyed my time volunteering. Sometimes I wonder if I would have enjoyed working in a different area of the hospital even more.

Advice

Schedule an early orientation time so that you have a wide selection of volunteer opportunities to choose from.
