patient ambassador

August 2020 Columbia, MO
“This volunteer opportunity helped me to fine-tune my patient communication skills. My role as a patient ambassador during COVID-19 was to escort patients to and from their doctors appointments. I also escorted visitors to the assigned unit they were looking for as well as bringing deliveries to patients in their rooms. All aspects of this volunteer experience helped me to feel more confident and comfortable in the health care setting.”
