Jefferson Health Mentors Program

Be a Health Mentor

Volunteering as a Health Mentor in the Jefferson Health Mentors Program (JHMP) gives you the opportunity to help teach students how various health professional roles complement one another in relation to patient-centered care. 

As a Health Mentor, you can:

  • Have flexible options
  • Develop meaningful relationships with students at Jefferson
  • Share your experiences with others
  • Read about other mentors and teams of students
  • Play a role in training future health professionals

After 50 years of navigating the medical maze as a patient, I realized that I had never taken the time to really think about what I thought worked and what needed fixing. And here I was with the opportunity to do it with some folks that one day will have a chance to do something about it! Very cool.
