Medical Reserve Corps Volunteer Orientation Sessions Planned

Thursday, September 7, 2017

The Northern Kentucky Medical Reserve Corps provides citizens of both medical and non-medical backgrounds with a way to help their communities during a public health emergency.

Anyone interested in joining the Medical Reserve Corps is invited to attend one of two orientation sessions:

The Northern Kentucky Medical Reserve Corps is a branch of the federal government’s Medical Reserve Corps program, and its goal is to provide a volunteer pool for the Northern Kentucky region that can enhance and support public health agencies and the health care infrastructure during a crisis.

Volunteers would be asked to serve in their own community; but may also choose to volunteer for the Tristate region or for communities in need around Kentucky. Volunteers will be offered trainings throughout the year that will support personal preparedness and basic disaster response skills, as well as developing specialized skills needed for a public health emergency response.

Anyone age 18 or older is eligible, and people with both medical and non-medical training are encouraged to join.

For more information about the Medical Reserve Corps, please contact Jessica McElroy at 859.363.2009 or jessica.mcelroy@nkyhealth.org, or visit http://www.nkyhealth.org/Medical-Reserve-Corps.aspx. If you plan to attend an orientation, call or e-mail Jessica McElroy to register in advance.
