DPH announces platform for medical and non-medical professionals to sign up to volunteer amid COVID-19 outbreak
On March 24th, the Georgia Department of Public Health announced a platform for medical and non-medical professionals to sign up to volunteer during the current COVID-19 outbreak.
“An effective response relies on volunteers who are pre-credentialed and organized. Georgia Responds is Georgia’s health and medical volunteer program which matches the skills and credentials of medical and nonmedical volunteers to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Georgia,” stated the agency.
To volunteer, log on to https://dph.georgia.gov/georgia-responds and click on the “Register Now” box. Registering only takes a few minutes.
Prospective volunteers will be asked for their name, address, contact information, and occupation type. In order to be eligible for some assignments, responders are encouraged to complete a profile summary, which includes skills and certifications, training, medical history, emergency contact, and deployment preferences. Once your skills and credentials are reviewed, you will be notified by a DPH representative.
