RCHD’s Tiffany Singer participates in MRC Workshop Conference in Indianapolis

RCHD’s PHEP Coordinator Tiffany Singer participated in the MRC (Medical Reserves Corps) Regional Workshop in Indianapolis, IN June 13 through 14.

Strategic plans were given at the workshop for improving partnerships, networking, and adding/training volunteers to local MRC units.

The MRC network comprises more than 300,000 volunteers in roughly 800 community-based units located throughout the United States and its territories. MRC units organize and utilize local volunteers who want to donate their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to emergencies and to support ongoing preparedness initiatives. MRC volunteers include medical and public health professionals as well as other community members without healthcare backgrounds who want to improve the health and safety of their communities.  At the local level, each MRC unit is led by an MRC unit coordinator, who matches community needs—for emergency medical response and public health initiatives—with volunteer capabilities. Local coordinators are also responsible for building partnerships, ensuring the sustainability of the local unit, and managing volunteer resources.
