The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is made up of community members with and without medical training, as well as public health professionals. Each individual possesses valuable skills that contribute to the day-to-day operations of the local public health department and during times of community need. The Central District Health’s Medical Reserve Corps program serves Ada, Boise, Elmore and Valley Counties.
Everyone is invited to apply to become a member of the CDH Medical Reserve Corps Unit. We are in great need of the following skills/positions:
You can join the CDH team and volunteer as frequently as you like or solely be available in the event of a public health emergency or disaster.
Typically, MRC members contribute their time and talents during an emergency or throughout the year by participating in our preparedness training and exercises.
Central District Health reserves the right to place volunteers where the need is greatest. We will make every attempt to place volunteers in area that capitalizes on their skills and abilities.

Screenings consist of a single finger poke to run a full lipid panel (Total Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides, and Blood Glucose) and an A1C test. Screenings take approximately 20 minutes and participants will leave with a copy of their results. Know your numbers – Get Screened! No appointment necessary, at the Mountain Home Library.
