CPMRC / MRC

Description:

The mission of the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is to establish teams of local volunteer medical and public health professionals who can contribute their skills and expertise throughout the year and during times of community need.

MRC volunteers include medical and public health professionals such as physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, veterinarians, and epidemiologists. Many community members!€”interpreters, chaplains, office workers, legal advisors, and others!€”can fill key support positions.

MRC units target specific areas for the sole purpose of strengthening the public health infrastructure of their communities. The U.S. Surgeon General outlines priorities for the health of individuals, and the nation as a whole. The overarching goal is to improve health literacy, and to work toward increasing disease prevention, eliminating health disparities, and improving public health prepare.
