Pre- and Post-Education Knowledge Assessments - Perform a knowledge assessment with the patient based on their screenings completed at the outreach to evaluate their knowledge of various health conditions or chronic diseases prior to the outreach. Direct the patient to health professionals at the outreach for education and consultation of their results, then run another knowledge assessment to evaluate their medical knowledge after receiving education.

Equipment Team** - Help volunteer coordinators transport equipment to outreach site before the event, set up the stations, and assist with tear down once event ends. One volunteer coordinator will be present at each event to oversee the process.

**You will be assigned to the equipment team by random selection. If you ask for a ride from a Program Coordinator, you are automatically placed in this team. Usually, Program Coordinators are able to divide all the equipment among their own cars before and after the outreach, so volunteers will most likely not be asked to accompany them to drop equipment off. Being assigned to the equipment team mainly entails helping Program Coordinators pack and load all the equipment into cars.
