The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a national network of local groups of volunteers committed to improving the health, safety, and resiliency of their communities. The Colorado Acupuncture Medical Reserve Corps (CAMRC) is the first statewide all acupuncture federally approved Medical Reserve Corp in the United States. We are a group of acupuncturists and non-medical personnel, who volunteer their time and services during disaster response, critical incidents, and community events.
Vision: Through acupuncture, the resilience and independence of individuals affected by disaster is fostered and restored such that they may rebuild their lives and communities in health and dignity.
Mission: The mission of the CAMRC is to provide treatment to evacuees, emergency responders, and others during critical incidents, natural disasters, community events, and to educate on the benefit of acupuncture.
We are available to provide one-hour educational sessions to those in the community wanting to learn more about what we do.
Our MRC volunteers work alongside other medical and service professionals as a team
We have the best opportunity to share our services with the most people in need of our care
We get the word out to the community that acupuncture care makes a real, positive difference!
