Do you have a health, wellness or event planning background? Would you like to help lead a medical event? Special Olympics NC is looking for an Assistant Medical Event Leader to help organize and plan the Charlotte MedFest for the Fall of 2019.
MedFest was created to offer the physical exam that all athletes need prior to participating in Special Olympics sports programming. It is sometimes the first exposure these athletes have to medical care.
In many cases, life-threatening conditions have been found and subsequently treated thanks to MedFest. Led by volunteer physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and medical students, the MedFest screening consists of the following stations: medical history, height and weight, blood pressure, cardiology test, musculoskeletal test, orthopedic tests, abdominal evaluation, and a check out station.
If you would like more information regarding this amazing and vital volunteer opportunity, please share your information and we will contact you.
