Volunteer Opportunities

Medical Reserve Corp

The need for trained supplemental healthcare personnel to assist with emergency operations was highlighted after the terrorist attacks of 2001 and hurricanes of 2005. Many medical and public health professionals sought to support emergency relief efforts, but there was no organized approach to channel their willingness to help.

 The Ohio Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) program provides the structure necessary to deploy healthcare personnel in response to an emergency, as it identifies specific, trained, and credentialed individuals available and ready to respond to emergencies, thus saving valuable time.

 Volunteers of any nature are being sought for this program; medical and non-medical persons. For more information, click here to be taken to our section on this website related to the Medical Reserve Corp. For specific questions or to get involved, you can contact the MRC Coordinator at rick.roush@uchd.net or by phone at 937-642-2053 ext. 2035.
