Greater Sullivan County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) intern Christopher Casey, of Colby Sawyer College, attended a special event in Boston Thursday, March 22, 2012.

WalkBoston is a large annual event promoting walkable communities for health and wellness. It was hosted in person by U.S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin.

Casey walked representing New Hampshire’s Greater Sullivan County MRC.

WalkBoston promotes making walking safer and easier to encourage better health, a cleaner environment and vibrant communities.

Casey is a Bachelor of Public Health candidate at Colby Sawyer College in New London. His internship project at the Greater Sullivan County Medical Reserve Corps has provided him with many experiences that show him how to organize a volunteer team for disaster relief.

Casey is also becoming an Medical Reserve Corps advocate by hosting a volunteer information session in April to recruit new volunteers and by posting health tips on Twitter.

The MRC is a group of willing and able volunteers, who can help the community when a public health emergency strikes.
