Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer for Health



“I have been an active volunteer physician for the past 12 years.
There is nothing more rewarding than seeing appreciation
from those I serve.”

---Dr. A. Campbell, MD
Volunteer for Health
Volunteers for Health can transform both the volunteers who give time and those who receive it. Many people’s lives have been touched by the special work of someone volunteering his or her time. Knowing that you are helping others in a way that cannot be measured in terms of monetary reward, but can be measured in terms of commitment, compassion and dedication to your community is a vital contribution.
We have many exciting fields for volunteers that range from office support to specialty care. We will help you find the right volunteer experience for you! Help us create a culture of care and good health in Pinellas County by volunteering. Please join us in making a difference in the quality of life of others.
