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 25,019 patients in 483,753 patient visits, filled over 431,356 prescriptions and performed over 24,337 radiology exams. Over 5,000 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.
