A Visit with the Birds Community Service Initiative

"A Visit with the Birds" (AVB)
AVB is a community service initiative meant to expose prospective health-science students to a medical environment while also assisting members of the El Paso community. AVB members visit eight separate nursing homes spread throughout the El Paso area. Participation is every Saturday, and the work is completely voluntary. Students get to assist facility personnel, socialize with a variety of patients to improve one's communication skills, and cite AVB as a volunteer organization on job/college applications. Sign up today at and we will provide you with a retirement community close to you! If you have any questions, feel free to email our coordinator at
Thank you!
