Medical Reserve Corps Volunteers Serve and Connect

John Rossheim / Monster Senior Contributing Writer

What Is the Medical Reserve Corps?

Founded in 2002 in the wake of the September 11 and anthrax attacks, this emergency medical preparedness program sponsored by the Office of the Surgeon General has grown from a $2 million seed-grant project into a national network, for which the White House requested $22 million for the 2005-2006 fiscal year.

“The concept is to establish a national system of these local teams to strengthen public health and emergency response capabilities,” says commander Robert Tosatto, director of the national MRC in Washington, DC. “We want MRCs to identify volunteers in the community in advance and get them credentialed and trained.”
