First and foremost, Central District Health would like to give a heartfelt thank you for your willingness to support your community through our Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) program.
Joining the MRC will provide you the opportunity to make a meaningful impact by lending your knowledge, support, and service during a public health district emergency and public health initiatives. Without your generous offer of service, there would be no MRC.
The Medical Reserve Corps is comprised of individuals from both medical to non-medical backgrounds. Volunteers of all skill levels and backgrounds are needed during an emergency response. We invite you to register in Volunteer Idaho, whether you are a licensed and certified healthcare provider, an administrative specialist, a retired professional, or an individual with an interest in helping your community in a health-related capacity to a disaster.
Furthermore, there are times your schedule will be busy and perhaps only interested in making a minimal commitment, these preferences are respected, and you do not have to be available all the time. You will have various opportunities during non-emergent times to volunteer in events, such as vaccination clinics, health education, training and exercises, data entry and other public health preparedness activities.
Again, we invite you to register in Volunteer Idaho! Registration in the system does not commit you to volunteering for an event. Upon completion of your registration, your local health department will contact you. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the local MRC Coordinator, Kalene Bataluna, at Central District Health via e-mail kbataluna@cdh.Idaho.gov or by phone (208) 327-8572.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Central District Health Medical Reserve Corps!
