HelpLine & Volunteer Coordinator

My primary role in the position was to provide information, resources and referrals, and counseling messages to callers of Hep C Connection's toll-free HelpLine. Staying up-to-date on the latest treatment research, understanding how to access medical care, and establishing partnerships with other social service organizations were key responsibilities. Additionally, I maintained the organization's website, social media, and newsletter; I assisted with all fundraising efforts; and I coordinated health fair participation and related volunteer activity.
