Volunteer Opportunities

PHEP is tasked with maintain a versatile group of volunteers to use in cases of emergency events or other public need.

Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)

 Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) units are community based and function as a way to locally organize and utilize volunteers—medical professionals and others—who want to donate their time and expertise to promote healthy living throughout the year and to prepare for and respond to emergencies.  MRC volunteers supplement existing local emergency and public health resources.

For information on volunteering with the MRC please contact, Robert Schlesinger at 928-524-4750 or send e-mail to: robert.schlesinger@navajocountyaz.gov
