Big Island high school and college students have a new opportunity to help out at Queen’s North Hawai‘i Community Hospital in Waimea.
The hospital is offering a new volunteer program designed for students looking for a meaningful way to spend the summer or who might interested in a career in health care.
“This is a great opportunity to learn more about the exciting field of health care while contributing to our local community,” Julia Ramos, fund development and volunteer program manager, said in a press release. “It has never been a more exciting time to work in a hospital and this gives our young people a great introduction into this rewarding field.”
