HCVV Training

During our health care work, we divide up the necessary roles among the volunteers.  Some roles require specific credentials, such as Provider or Dentist, but other roles are easy for a willing volunteer to learn.  You will choose or be assigned to a specific role for the whole week, so that you can become expert at that role.  The people in each role work together to set up their station each day.
