Did you know that people who do charity work and volunteer in other ways may be benefiting in terms of better health? In a recent study, it was found that volunteers were 30% more likely to receive flu shots, 47% more likely to receive cholesterol tests, and spent 38% fewer nights in the hospital. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0277953615302495
If you are looking to do more volunteer work this year, live near the Peter Lougheed Centre in Calgary, enjoy meeting new people and assisting them as they navigate their way through a hospital setting, you may be interested in becoming a Wayfinding Ambassador. Other volunteer opportunities at PLC are also available here.
