The Medical Reserve Corps is "dedicated to establishing teams of local volunteer medical and public health professionals to contribute their skills and expertise throughout the year as well as during times of community need."
"The purpose of the MRC Program is to strengthen communities by providing a structure for volunteers to offer their expertise in times of community need. The MRC is a local volunteer unit that supplements existing community emergency response systems during large-scale emergencies."
"The University of Virginia Medical Reserve Corps (UVAMRC) is a joint student-faculty community service and outreach project, housed in the UVa Health System. It is the first Medical Reserve Corps with a student leadership model and one of a growing number of university-based programs across the country. The UVAMRC works with many local, state, and national groups to supplement the local and regional medical response during a major disaster or bioterror event. The UVAMRC also initiates and develops ongoing community health projects that serve our local area."

“When a magnitude 7.0 earthquake devastated Port-au-Prince, PIH/ZL responded quickly and effectively, providing care to hundreds of thousands who fled to Haiti’s Central Plateau and Artibonite regions and establishing four health outposts in Port-au-Prince. PIH/ZL also ramped up mental health and psychosocial programs, farming initiatives, and education projects.” Join us as we Stand With Haiti.
