Scott & White Helping Hands Volunteer Program
Baylor Scott & White Health Helping Hands is a volunteer program for anyone passionate about healthcare or simply interested in giving back to their community. Healthcare is all about people and the experience we create for our patients. People who love serving others or are interested in joining the healthcare field would be a great fit for this volunteer opportunity. While volunteers don't have direct patient healthcare contact, the program gives an extensive overview of what Baylor Scott & White does every day.
