Employee Health will provide these free of charge.  

You will also need to attend a day-long orientation and complete safety and compliance training.

We are proud of our dedicated family of volunteers at Duke Regional. We couldn’t provide the quality of services we do without the help of our volunteers. To learn more about our volunteer program, call the department of Volunteer Services at 919-470-4150.
