R.A.I.N., Inc. is recruiting community members to be part of a new and very exciting Bronx Health Corps project aimed at educating Bronx seniors on asthma and how to manage their symptoms. The Bronx Health Corps is part of a Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program grant designed to promote wellness and healthy aging among Bronx older adults. It is a partnership between the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) at the NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing, Montefiore Health System and R.A.I.N., Inc. Volunteers receive training by a registered nurse. This training will equip the volunteers to provide education sessions for older adults at a Bronx-based senior center or community site. The material will be engaging, interactive and fun! Prior knowledge of these topics is not required.
Training for the volunteers is ongoing.
The Bronx Health Corps project is a unique opportunity to help improve the health outcomes of Bronx older adults. Unfortunately, Bronx County is ranked last among all 62 counties in terms of population health. You can make a positive, perhaps even life-altering, impact in the lives of the Bronx’s older adults, by volunteering.
Please take the first step and obtain an application via email.
We look forward to hearing from you. Together we can make a difference!
