The Richmond City Medical Reserve Corps is one of over 400 units that are part of the national Medical Reserve Corps program under the direction of the Office of the U. S. Surgeon General. MRC units are community based and function as a way to locally organize and utilize volunteers who want to help supplement existing emergency and public health resources in their community.
The purpose of the Richmond MRC unit is to:
