Just 12 hours can change lives...

Each year our patient care volunteers are responsible for earning 12 hours of continuing education to remain active. Volunteers are given credit for 4 of these twelve hours for reading "At the Heart," our quarterly volunteer newsletter. Volunteers must earn the other 8 hours by attending an in-service or completing self-study opportunities by the end of the year.
