From South Georgia Medical Center

South Georgia Medical Center welcomes 48 Youth Volunteers to its annual summer program, Canopy of Care.

Participants are students between the ages of 14 and 17 whose responsibilities vary from patient care/interaction, administrative support, to surgical and outpatient services support.  

"SGMC's teen volunteer campaign has evolved into a mature experience for rising, young students whose ultimate career interests lie within the Healthcare profession," states Jessica McKinney with SGMC Volunteer Services."

Branded as Canopy of Care, students walk the halls of SGMC fulfilling commitments and welcoming challenges of civic engagement. Their 8-week summer adventure exposes them to our community of care as they forge forward in their interest and pursuit of success in health care."  

70 applications for the program were considered and interviews were held resulting in the final 48.

Students are hosted in 20 different areas of the SGMC enterprise, including the Smith Northview Campus, Diabetes Management Center and the Langdale Hospice House.
