Next week, the Xfinity Center at the University of Maryland will transform into a free dental and health screenings clinic for The Maryland Center for Health Equity Festival. They are recruiting volunteers for September 7th, 8th, & 10th. This event attracts thousands of visitors and, as you can imagine, they could use a lot of help to ensure that as many people as possible receive services.

If you are interested in volunteering, below is an outline of volunteer positions and instructions on how to register:

1. DATA COLLECTORS* (separate registration process): The Center for Health
Equity will be doing Research/Data Collection at the event. We need volunteer
Data Collectors to talk with patients directly, inform them about the study,
and assist them in downloading an app/taking a survey. This position requires
an online CITI research training (if you do not currently have it, we can
send you directions on how to obtain it). If interested, please sign up with
this link and we will contact you:
*Note: this role requires an additional training meeting with us at the
Center for Health Equity to explain the study and procedures accompanying
this role.

2. PATIENT REGISTRATION: Patient Registration/Check-in/out involves fielding
all new patients that come through our doors and taking down their personal
information before they head to medical assessment and triage. This position
requires that volunteers commit to show up for their chosen shift AND are
good with computers. To register please go directly to
Under Volunteer Roles you will click Patient Registration & Check Out and you
