Physician volunteers needed for science fest

Be a part of promoting healthy living and medical careers by volunteering at the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation’s booth at the Wisconsin Science Festival in Madison. Physician volunteers are still needed for Friday, October 18, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The Wisconsin Science Festival is a free statewide event focused on all things science. The Foundation coordinates with the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health student group Doctors Ought to Care to host a booth at the Discovery Building on the UW-Madison campus. It’s a fun and energizing opportunity to interact with thousands of visitors over the four days of the event.

Volunteers will be seated at a table alongside three to five other physicians and medical students and will introduce a few human organs to kids and their families as they visit the booth. Organs generally include heart, brain, lung, kidney, liver, stomach and intestines. Volunteers will provide info about what the organs are, what they do, where they are found in the body and answer any questions. Volunteers and visitors are encouraged to gently touch and examine the organs with gloves provided.

To help out on Friday, October 18, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. or for more details, email Eileen Wilson or call 608.442.3722.
