CPR/ First Aid- Volunteers being trained to provide CPR/AED 

training on a community based basis and to schools. The goal

is to provide training to all Muskegon County students

according to the new state graduation guidelines. 

Blood pressure clinics- Hypertension has been identified as

one of the leading causes of death in Muskegon County. 

Many people have limited access to health care or do not feel comfortable going to the doctor.

The Medical Reserve Corps along through an initial grant through public health started providing blood pressure clinics in key areas where hypertension is high.

Clinics are set up once a month in these areas and the Medical Reserve Corps volunteers provided screenings for those walking in. For those that present a high reading, we counsel them on lifestyle changes to bring their blood pressure levels down.

   

The Medical Reserve Corps- Medical and non Medical

volunteers giving back to their community through public

health initiatives.

Some of the biggest projects include:

H1N1 Pandemic Outbreak - 98% of immunizations were provided by the Medical Reserve Corps volunteers. Volunteer hours were valued at over $380,000.00 savings to the county and was honored by the state of Michigan to have the highest immunization rate in the state.

Shigella -Shigella is an intestinal bug that was spread through Muskegon County public and private elementary

schools. Medical Reserve Corps volunteers went to individual schools and provided hand washing education to all elementary students in the county.

VIALS OF LIFE

The Muskegon County Medical Reserve Corps provides these Vials free of charge to the community. The Vials of Life are pill bottles that come with a form you fill out in which you provide your medical information. The magnetic card that comes with the “vial” is placed on the front of the refrigerator.  If emergency personnel are called to your home they know when they see the magnet on the refrigerator to look in the refrigerator for this bottle with the information inside.  This will help to save time and aid them in treating your condition. 

If you have empty medicine vials you would like to donate, contact us.  Thank you!
