**LMH Volunteer Program On Hold**

To help ensure the safety of our campus for our patients, their families and our employees as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we have made the difficult decision to suspend most of the volunteer, student, shadowing and intern programs on our campus effective Monday, March 23, 2020. The website will be updated with information when programming resumes.

Volunteering during the School Year

We ask our new students to volunteer Monday through Friday, no later than 4pm-6pm so that staff are available to offer support. Weekend volunteering is not an option for new junior volunteers but is an option later on.

High School Observation

Short-term observation of staff and physicians is reserved for college students. Once you graduate from high school, you are eligible to apply to shadow. If you are interested in gaining more experience now, we encourage you to explore our junior volunteer program.
