Volunteers power Seattle/King County Clinic, bridging language gaps & specialties
CityStream: Volunteers: The Heart of the Seattle/King County Clinic

Each year, the Seattle/King County Clinic welcomes thousands of volunteers to help run this massive community event.

Hundreds of other volunteers have no healthcare background whatsoever, yet the assistance they provide is essential. And no matter if the volunteer is a surgeon or a student, none of them receive any compensation for their services. Producer Randy Eng has more.
