Hands on Nashville needs POD volunteers

From Hands On Nashville:

Hands On Nashville needs dedicated volunteers to step forward and protect community members' health. Through a partnership with Metro Government, Hands On Nashville is currently recruiting 4,000 community members to serve as Point of Dispensing volunteers.

A Point of Dispensing, or POD, is a clinic that may be activated in the event of a public health emergency, such as an outbreak of pandemic flu, smallpox or a biological event. A POD's purpose is to enable Metro Public Health officials to provide prophylactic medications and relevant information to a large number of healthy residents in a limited amount of time. Although POD activation is highly unlikely, Points of Dispensing are important components of Nashville's emergency plan.

Become a certified POD volunteer today by completing the online training course at www.hon.org, or sign-up to attend an in-person training program. Either course takes less than an hour to complete. For more information about POD volunteerism, please see this flyer, or contact Josh Corlew at (615) 298-1108, ext. 111 or josh@hon.org.
