Lend a Hand
As National Volunteer Week 2016 wraps up, we want to share ideas for volunteering in ways that can support Canadian heart rhythm health.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation depends on volunteers to help support its mission. There are many different ways that you can help, from riding the Big Bike to doing office administrative work. Click here for information and to find out what opportunities are available in your province!
It is also starting an exciting new project called Heart and Stroke Healing Circles, where women support each other as survivors of heart disease. Click on the link if you are interested in joining!
You can also look to your local health care centres to see if there are any volunteer opportunities there – like the volunteers of the Heart Institute Auxiliary who support the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, or the volunteer patients at the University of British Columbia Department of Medicine.
And if you really want to roll up your sleeves and get involved, you can look into volunteering for a clinical trial – like this one, running in several locations across Canada!
