CCPMRC In Action 

Our volunteers were invited to participate in the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. We worked with the Washington D.C. Department of Health to conduct patient tracking & family reunification services at various medical stations. Above are a few pictures of our volunteers at the medical aid stations around the National Mall. 

How can I maintain my active member status? 
  1. Participate in AT LEAST 3 community outreach events per calendar year (starting from June)
  2. Participate in AT LEAST 1 POD exercise per calendar year (starting from June)
  3. Complete AT LEAST 1 MRC TRAIN module per calendar year (starting from June)   
By maintaining your Active Member Status, you will have first priority on volunteering on events such as the presidential inauguration, be able to attend the end of the year CCPMRC Volunteer Appreciation Banquet (which includes several free giveaways), as well as other benefits from future partnering companies.  
 
Again, THANK YOU for all your efforts in making CCPMRC great!
CCPMRC is also now a part of DC Responds, a section of the Department of Health's national initiative to coordinate and mobilize volunteers to respond to all types of emergencies. 
We recommend members to register at this website:
https://www.dcresponds.org/agreement.php
Please sign up for MRC TRAIN as soon as possible, using the following link: www.mrc.train.org

Mission State and Goals of CCPMRC
 
The mission of CCPMRC is to engage volunteers to strengthen public health, emergency response and community resilience.

The goal of CCPMRC is to increase the number of trained pharmacy students, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to prepare for and respond to emergencies and promote healthy living throughout the year. This MRC has been uniquely established in October 2013 to recruit and train volunteers to provide pharmacy-related functions during an emergency situation. Pharmacy related functions include but are not limited to mass vaccinations, staffing medical point-of-dispensing stations and provision of emergency supply of chronic medications.This effort will be supported by the District of Columbia- Department of Health, Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Administration
