Volunteer to be a Health Mentor Health Mentors are volunteer adult community members who have one or more chronic conditions or diseases. Volunteers may also have disabilities such as spinal cord injury, hearing/vision impairment, brain injury or others.
Health Mentors help CU students understand the impact of living with a chronic health condition or disability. They share their health history and experiences related to medication management, health access, wellness and psycho-social aspects of care.
Mentors meet four times during six months with an assigned group of five to six CU health profession students. Sessions are two hours and meet at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora.
