Medical Reserve Corps recruiting bilingual volunteers

Posted: Updated:

Public health workers are looking for bi-lingual volunteers to help with medical emergencies and emergency preparedness.

The Medical Reserve Corps will hold a town hall meeting June 9th from six to eight at Moultrie Technical College to recruit bi-lingual volunteers.

Recruiter Travis Donnelly says you don't need a medical background to become a volunteer.

"Because it's called a medical reserve Corp, people sometimes think we're only looking for medical people only and that's not true at all. Most medical reserve corps are 50 to 75 percent non medical," said Donnelly.

Recruiters are looking for volunteers who are fluent in English and Spanish, French, Chinese and even sign language.
