What is the Medical Reserve Corps?

The Medical Reserve Corps is a national network of local groups of volunteers committed to improving the health, safety and resiliency of their communities.


MRC units are community-based and serve to organize and utilize volunteers, both medical professionals and non-medical, who want to donate their time and expertise to promote healthy living throughout the year and to respond to emergencies.  Whether it's an epidemic or a natural disaster, the MRC volunteers work in coordination with local emergency responders to assist their communities.


Mission Statement:

The Mission of Howard County Medical Reserve Corps is to engage medical and non-medical volunteers through pre-identification, credentialing, and training to promote health literacy, increase community resiliency, and disaster preparedness with activities and events through the year.
