Celebrating National Volunteer Week

As we come to the end of National Volunteer Week (April 18-24), AHS is proud to celebrate all the volunteers who support healthcare in Alberta, including our site and program volunteers; foundation, auxiliary and “Friends of” volunteers; Advisory Councils; patient and family advisors; and many more.

More than ever, we are grateful to have so many dedicated volunteers who are willing to share their time and talents with our patients and staff. Thank you for the amazing work you do across the province.

Joining our guest host, Dr. Kathryn Todd, to talk about their experiences as AHS volunteers are:

  • Duncan Thomas, Volunteer, Renal Dialysis Program, Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre
  • Cheryl Pigula, Wayfinder Volunteer, Medicine Hat Regional Hospital
  • Jan Ellis, Volunteer, No One Dies Alone Program, Calgary Zone

In this vlog, Duncan, Cheryl and Jan talk about the importance of volunteering, their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic and how their roles have changed.

I encourage our staff and physicians to visit Sharing the Love and ThanksforCaring.ca to share their appreciation for all of the amazing volunteers who support AHS.
