The Newton Medical Reserve Corps overarching goal is to support the mission and activities of the Newton Health & Human Services Department.
About the MRC
The Newton Medical Reserve Corps is a group of medical and non-medical volunteers who help the Health & Human Services Department during emergencies and at public health activities throughout the year. It was officially established and recognized by the U.S. Surgeon General’s Office in 2006. The unit includes approximately 100 volunteers from a variety of backgrounds including nursing, medicine, pharmacy, public health, and those who aren’t in the medical profession. Some volunteers are retired while others are working professionals. Newton collaborates with other health departments in its emergency preparedness region, Region 4b, on MRC activities including training and response.
Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers assist local public health to promote healthy living and prepare for and respond to emergencies. Volunteers bring a range of skills to the MRC and need not have a medical background.
