Volunteers Give 94,360 Hours to Assist During Pandemic

Maricopa County Public Health Volunteer
Medical Reserve Corps volunteers provide both medical and non-medical support for the county’s COVID-19 response.

“Before COVID, we already had a very strong core group of volunteers,” says June Vutrano, Medical Reserve Corps coordinator for MCDPH. “Once COVID happened, many folks reached out and wanted to help. With social media, we added a few thousand people and when the vaccine came in January of this year, we added another 10,000 volunteers.” Several thousand volunteers are currently undergoing screening and training that will further expand the operation.
