The Cooper Count Medical Reserve Corp (MRC) was developed as a result of emergency planning and preparedness by the Cooper County Public Health Center. The MRC program coordinates the skills of practicing and retired physicians, nurses and other health professional as well as other citizens interested in health issues, who are eager to volunteer and assist in a support role to address their community’s ongoing public health needs and to help their community during large-scale emergency situations. MRC volunteers may also serve a vital role by assisting their communities with ongoing public health needs (e.g., immunizations, screenings, health and nutrition education and volunteering in community health centers and local hospitals). (If you are interested in volunteering for the Cooper County MRC please contact Erin Davis at 660-882-2626.)
