FRAMINGHAM – At-Large Framingham City Councilor and former Selectmen Chair Cheryl Tully Stoll received the Framingham Medical Reserve Corps Inspiration Award at their annual meeting.
Given for her longtime support of the Corps, the award was also accompanied by Citations from the Massachusetts House of Representatives and the Massachusetts State Senate.
In the letter informing Tully Stoll of the honor from the Region 4A Framingham Medical Reserve Corps, Chief Public Health Nurse Kitty Mahoney said, “We are so grateful for your personal and professional dedication to the residents of Framingham and to our fellow civilian volunteers on matters of Emergency Preparedness, Public Health and Safety.”
“When I received Kitty’s letter I was blown away,” said Tully Stoll. “The Corps is a group of individuals that I have so much respect for. They are true unsung heroes in our community. They are a world class group of medical and non-medical volunteers who donate their time and often personal resources to make sure that the residents of Framingham have the information and emergency backup we need to keep our city a safe and healthy place for all.”
Some of the activities of the Reserve Corps are running the annual Flu Clinic that vaccinates hundreds of our residents for free, operating emergency shelters, providing medical tents for the Boston Marathon and other large events in the community.
Medical Reservists also participate in extensive training workshops throughout the year to keep up to date with the latest triage and other lifesaving techniques.
Framingham’s Medical Reserve Corps has been recognized as one of the best in the country.
“I want to thank Kitty and her Board for this recognition and our state legislative delegation for their recognition as well. This has been truly humbling,” said Tully Stoll.
