I volunteered in high school at a hospital (for about 100 hours), and I'm not sure if this should be included. I mean, it was high school, but it also profoundly impacted me. In fact I now volunteer with hospice because I sat with a lady while she was dying when I was a hospital volunteer. It started my great interest in palliative/hospice care medicine. So, do I include it or not?

Yes, but keep in mind that what happened in high school stays in high school.
