The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers contribute their time and efforts in a wide variety of situations, from natural disasters to health fairs.
Health care workers, such as doctors and nurses, are always needed. But non-healthcare workers are needed, too! Non-health care workers can provide valuable technical assistance, clerical support, logistics, translation assistance and much more! If you are older than 18 and in good health, talk to a local coordinator today!
