We believe that doing good makes people feel better.

 

Research studies show that volunteering helps improve our self-esteem, social connectedness, and self-efficacy. Your choices matter when other people are counting on you. Volunteering also lowers our risk of heart disease, regardless of risk factors, socioeconomic level, gender, or age.

That's why Basecamp creates opportunities for our patients and our communities to give back. Heart to Start, Play Smart Youth Screenings, Women with Heart, and Art for Heart are just a few of our programs that include opportunities to reconsider the "help" in "self-help." We look forward to healing it forward with you!

Basecamp Medical Director Dr. James Beckerman speaks about our Heal it Forward initiative at TEDx Peachtree.
