Following the events of September 11 2001, it became clear that there was no method for coordinating the services of thousands of volunteers wanting to help. As a result, the Office of the U.S. Surgeon General announced the formation of the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC). The overall goal of the imitative was to establish teams of local volunteer medical professionals and laypersons to contribute their skills and expertise during times of need.
Wildcat Region MRC
The Wildcat Region Medical Reserve Corps is a regional unit covering Geary, Pottawatomie, and Riley counties in Northeast Kansas. The regional unit was formed in early 2016 and is actively seeking volunteers! For more information on the MRC, including how to volunteer, please visit the Wildcat Region MRC website.
