Physicians Volunteer to Teach 4H Club Kids New Skills
Community doctors make large impact by volunteering with youth.
[In regards to healthcare successes] Well, Im going to say if I just had my mayors hat on right now, we just had a presentation from the 4H Club in council looking for funding, and they told us that they were so pleased because two physicians volunteered their time to help teach the 4H kids how to do sutures and what a success and what it meant to the program. And so if I was to pretend that it wasnt personally connected to half the physicians in town, I think the real success of small-town health is theyre in the community. They volunteer, theyre community leaders, theyre no different than us. They take on a lions share of work and they make a big impact and I think thats the coolest part.
