Opportunities

Hospice of Huntington
Contact: Martha Persinger, (304)529-4217, mpersinger@hospiceofhuntington.org

“Volunteers are the Heart of Hospice of Huntington.  Our many volunteers support Hospice of Huntington’s mission by performing a variety of services.  Volunteers visit patients and families but also help in our offices, as special project volunteers, and with fundraising in the community so we can care for all those seeking hospice care regardless of their ability to pay.  Volunteers are trained according to their level of involvement.  Patient support, Clergy, and Administrative volunteers undergo background checks and fingerprinting so families can feel confident that the people who come into their homes are safe and reliable.”

Refraction Clinic
Contact: Katie Rollins, rollins63@marshall.edu

“Building’s center entrance first door on the right. Students do not have to wear their white coat, Street clothes are fine! No experience is necessary just come willing to learn! It’s a great opportunity to practice interacting with patients and to earn some hours. Unless students elect to take an ophtho rotation as an elective their 4th year, this is the only exposure most will get to it”


Let’s Get Moving
Contact: Adee Elhamdani, elhamdani2@marshall.edu

“We go to local elementary schools and spend about 2.5 hours working with 5th grade students. We set up stations (jump rope, basketball, an obstacle course, a nutrition station, etc.) and the students rotate through each one. The mission is to help fight obesity by teaching the kids healthy eating and exercise habits. In addition, each student gets an athletic prize to take home. Not only do the kids seem to really enjoy having us there, the events are rewarding and fun for us too!”
