Two Ways To Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Love Your Heart on February 14, 2019!

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 2018, over 36,000 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 2019, now in its eighth 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 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
  • Be comfortable using a smartphone, tablet, or laptop

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:

  • Have a background in community health promotion and or education
  • Be outgoing and eager to engage with community members
  • Be comfortable using a smartphone, tablet, or laptop
