Public Service & Volunteerism

The Medical Reserve Corps of Boulder County (MRCBC) works to establish teams of trained, local volunteer medical, public health, and safety professionals who can contribute their skills and expertise during times of community and national need.

Read commentary by Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security about how the spirit of public service strengthens the nation.

"I joined MRC because I wanted to put my training in surgery and medicine to good use locally. Now I realize that the strength of Boulder County's communities relies on the many talented, caring people who are willing to volunteer their time and their skills without any government requirement to do so. We live in the best county in the country!"
Dr. Jan Sanchez
