Understanding this, the undersigned expressly assumes the risks of participating in the volunteer program and releases and discharges Baptist Memorial Hospital, Baptist Memorial Health Care System, Inc., their affiliates, and their agents and employees, from any and all liabilities or claims arising from or related to the exposure to or contraction of any disease(s), ailment(s), or condition(s) as a result of participation in the volunteer program at Baptist Memorial Hospital.
