Join the Ebola Response!

The New Orleans Medical Reserve Corps (NOMRC) is looking for medical and public health professionals and students to strengthen preparedness capacities for Ebola. Volunteers will be trained to assist in the event of a suspected or confirmed Ebola case in New Orleans. Opportunities include working in an Ebola response call center, conducting outreach, and monitoring the temperature of quarantined individuals.  There is some preparedness work that is currently being conducted by the NOMRC and more volunteers will be needed if we have a suspected case in Louisiana.    Check out the "Upcoming Events" tab to find out the dates and times of upcoming Ebola trainings.
