List Moderator

The moderator of the two-way Medical Reserve Corps Leaders Listserv is the Communications Coordinator/Team Lead Grace Middleton. If you have any questions, comments, or complaints about the list, please e-mail Ms. Middleton at grace.middleton@hhs.gov.

Purpose of the MRC Leaders Listserv

The MRC Leaders Listserv is designed to provide a forum for unit leaders and members to exchange ideas, thoughts, problems, and solutions that relate to starting and sustaining a unit, best practices, public health and preparedness activities, emergency response, volunteer recruitment, and partnership building. At the present time, the MRC Leaders Listserv is not limited to MRC members. This E-mail Discussion Group should be used solely to share ideas and information related to the MRC mission. It is not a general discussion list.
