We know that when applying to medical, dental, or any kind of healthcare school, a healthy portion of your Curriculum Vitae will need to be dedicated to volunteer work and community service. Well, we have that covered as well! Below is just a small sampling of the volunteering opportunities available in and near the Sacramento region, and the list will be expanded as more opportunities arise.
