Voices Art Gallery Exhibit

Hello Volunteers:

I thought you might be interested in learning about the current exhibit on display in the Cancer Center’s Voices Art Gallery; it features art work by patients and is entitled “I have (or had) cancer and I feel … .”

The exhibit, which will be on display through December, features the art of cancer patients, many who have visited the PERC. The exhibit provides a glimpse into the many physical, emotional and/or spiritual feelings that occur in someone who has or had cancer. In addition, it offers understanding, awareness, insights and hope resulting in a lasting picture for both the artist and the viewer.

You may wish to take a few minutes before or after your shift to view the incredible pieces of art on display and to see if you have met any of the artists!

Flu Policy 2011

This entry should be read by both PERC Staff and Tech Squad Volunteers.

Dear Volunteers,

Once again, UMHS joins dozens of other health care institutions nationwide in requiring influenza (flu) vaccination or protective mask use during flu season.

This means that everyone who volunteers at the health system must receive a flu vaccine by Dec. 1, or will be required to wear a surgical or isolation mask for all face-to-face patient interactions or when entering patient rooms during flu season, which typically lasts several months.

The flu shots are free for volunteers. Click on the following link for additional information and a list flu shot clinics.

Remember, it will be up to all of us to ensure that we prevent the spread of flu from those who work here to those who place themselves in our care. Thank you in advance for your help.

If you have any questions regarding this policy, please let me know. --Lori
