Two Ways To Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Love Your Heart on February 14, 2018!

Love Your Heart is an annual event in which organizations from across San Diego County and Mexico join together to provide free blood pressure screenings on Valentine’s Day, February 14. In 2017, over 50,000 residents were screened.

Your help is needed to activate your fellow San Diegans to take charge of their heart health.

We look forward to working with you to make Love Your Heart 2018, now in its seventh year, bigger and better!

Medical Volunteer

As a Medical Volunteer, you will be assigned to support a Love Your Heart screening site within San Diego County by conducting blood pressure screenings. Most sites are active between 8am-5pm, though shorter shifts may be assigned.

Medical Volunteers should ideally:

  • Be a certified medical worker
  • Be a nurse, first responder (including firefighters and paramedics), or other credentialed individual who is trained in taking blood pressure readings manually
  • Have access to a blood pressure cuff that can be used to perform blood pressure screenings during the event

General Volunteer

As a General Volunteer, you will be assigned to support a Love Your Heart screening site within San Diego County. Most sites are active between 8am-5pm, though shorter shifts may be assigned. You will be responsible for encouraging individuals at your assigned site to participate in a free blood pressure screening, guiding them through the screening process, and providing heart health information to participants. You will not be responsible for conducting blood pressure screenings as they will be conducted by trained medical volunteers only.

General Volunteers should ideally:

  • Be a student of a graduate program in Public Health, Exercise and Nutritional Sciences, or other graduate-level program with a focus on health, or otherwise familiar with medical/health terminology
  • Have a background in community health promotion and or education
  • Be comfortable using a smartphone, tablet, or laptop
