MRC looking for volunteers

While a national program, the local North Centeral Medical Reserve Corps was founded locally about a year ago and is partnered with the city of Oxford, the University of Mississippi and Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi. MRC was given federal money to start the program that is under Oxford’s Retired Senior Volunteer Program umbrella.

MRC volunteers will assist in medical disaster operations during times of emergency and participate throughout the year doing public education programs that will touch on subjects such as pandemic flues, disaster preparedness and good health topics.

MRC is holding an information meeting at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Oxford Activity Center in hopes of recruiting more volunteers for its program. (October 25, 2010, Page 2A)
