WBIX Business Radio Meets the MRC

On Saturday June 26, from 11 to 11:30 a.m., business listeners from across Eastern Massachusetts and six New England states could tune into WBIX, 1060 AM, to learn about the Medical Reserve Corps system.

Nancy Burns, coordinator of the Upper Merrimack Valley MRC, was invited earlier that week to be a guest on the weekly program "Stu Taylor on Business."

Some listeners may have been surprised at first to learn about the formation of Medical Reserve Corps units on a business program. However, Nancy pointed out that everyone can benefit from learning about the MRCs. "We are all affected by the work of the Medical Reserve Corps," said Nancy. "Whether it's a public health emergency, mass casualty disaster, or public service project, an MRC can touch the lives of local residents and the business community alike."

As soon as Nancy checked her messages back at the office, she found that someone had already left a message to volunteer as a translator for the nearest MRC. Clearly the word was out: anyone who has special skills to offer and wants to help is encouraged to contact their local MRC about ways to participate.
