Regional One Health Spotlight – Angela Hughes
Community Affairs and Engagement Manager, Angela Hughes, provided the membership with
a “spotlight moment” on best practices for volunteering within ROH. Angela reviewed ways to
volunteer and distinguished between level I and level II events for members. A level I
volunteer event is one where volunteers will be interacting or potentially in contact with
patients (comfort cart or baby cuddling) and will need tuberculosis screening, flu shot and
immunization review on file.. A level II event volunteers will not be interacting with patients
and is open to all members. All volunteers are asked to be mindful of the privacy of patients
and to adhere to the standards and policies of Regional One Health.
One Club Events Coordinator, Amanda Damron, gave an update on the upcoming events her
committee has planned. Amanda passed around event information and signup list during the
meeting to recruit volunteers. She also explained that all members (level I and level II
volunteers) are welcome to help with these events. The volunteer opportunities Amanda has
planned for the first half of the year are listed below.
