The IU School of Medicine is celebrating volunteer faculty through a special social media campaign.

While physicians who share their time and expertise to train tomorrow's physicians are valued throughout the year, this week -- National Volunteer Week -- offered an ideal opportunity to publicly acknowledge volunteer faculty.

IUSM regional centers tailored messages to their communities, recognizing the local contributions, while also reminding others about the important contribution of IUSM in their own backyards.

In addition to images and messages on Facebook, hundreds of tweets celebrated the contributions of volunteer faculty. It's not too late to join in; IUSM faculty, staff and students are encouraged to post messages of thanks on their personal social media channels.
