Manatee County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)
The Medical Reserve Corps is a team of pre-identified, trained and credentialed volunteers who augment local community health and medical services during disasters and other public health activities. These volunteers include physicians, nurses, dentists, veterinarians, pharmacists, other health and medical professionals, as well as others who are willing to support the MRC and Manatee County.
When the health and medical capability of Manatee County is stretched during disasters and other health emergencies, the MRC is here to assist!
