In April, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) released the 2013 Network Profile of the Medical Reserve Corps report. This report is a comprehensive look at the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), a national network of more than 200,000 health and medical volunteers in 1,000 local units across the United States. The Office of the Surgeon General established the Division of the Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps after the September 11 attacks as a way for citizens to respond to a man-made or natural disaster. This first-of-its-kind report, describes how local MRC units enhance their communities' public health and emergency preparedness capabilities and how MRC units fill valuable and critical roles in their communities.
