Snellville, GA - Eastside Medical Center has announced Joanne Gilbreath as the Volunteer of the Year in honor of her continued dedication to Eastside over the last 13 years. Joanne has served in many executive volunteer positions over the last 13 years including President, President-Elect, Past President, and the Vice President of Recruitment. In addition to local volunteer work at Eastside Medical Center, Gilbreath has also served at the state level on the Council on Auxiliaries as the District Vice President of Education and Vice President of Membership.
As a volunteer at Eastside Medical Center, Gilbreath has served in Day Surgery as the Area Chairman, Endoscopy, and at the North Tower information desk. Gilbreath has recently resigned from the Auxiliary Board of Directors, but not without continuing to serve in other areas. Gilbreath will now be chairing all of the Auxiliary fundraisers during the year, working with vendors to support various purse sales, book sales, jewelry and brand name product sales.
Nominated by Eastside Medical Center employees, her fellow volunteers, and the Auxiliary Board of Directors, Gilbreath is most deserving of this honor. "Joanne is always the first to help, with a big friendly smile and a warm and caring heart," said Eastside Medical Center's Director of Volunteer Services Laura Hannah, "She loves people and helping her community and is a true asset to Eastside Medical Center." Although, if you ask Joanne Gilbreath she will humbly say, "there are many volunteers who deserve this award with me." With her humble and kind spirit, Gilbreath enriches the lives of the patients, volunteers, and staff members that she interacts with at Eastside Medical Center. Congratulations Joanne!
