Become a Health Coach
Who: Clemson University, Greenville Hospital System and Oakmont Nursing Center are working together to provide an educational support system for individuals who have experienced a stroke. Volunteers are needed to work with these individuals after they have been discharged to return home. Volunteer training will be provided by Clemson University employees, Ms. Malerie Simons, Dr. Cheryl Dye and Dr. Lynne Cory.
What: Health Coaches will complement health services the patient receives by facilitating the patients' transition from rehabilitation services to home for four months after they are discharged from Oakmont Nursing Center.
Where: Health Coach training will take place Monday through Friday mornings from 9:30 to 12:30, during the weeks of May 12th and May 19th, 2008 at Greenville Hughes Main Library. Training will include information about stroke rehabilitation, prevention, and how to use community resources. Trainees will be reimbursed for mileage.
Why: To make a difference in the lives of others and to learn more about your own health and local resources.
