Volunteers are very important at Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine – in fact they are our greatest asset! Since LVIM opened its doors in February, 2001, we have enrolled over 20,000 patients in 452,084 patient visits, filled over 404,982 prescriptions and performed over 22,182 radiology exams. Over 4,800 volunteers and 500 doctors, dentists and ARNP’s have donated their time.
But as you can see with this large volume of patients, it takes skilled people of all backgrounds and professions to make everything run properly. You don’t have to have a medical background to volunteer, as there are many other opportunities to serve the uninsured of Polk County and give the gift of good health to LVIM’s patients.
