-- Dr. Punyamurtula S. Kishore, President of Preventive Medicine Associates, Inc. (PMAI), a group of family practices located throughout Massachusetts focused on bringing the best care to their patients and community, was recognized by Vision 44,000 – a social effort of the Basilica of the Holy Apostles – and Archbishop Timothy Paul at the 2nd Annual Recognition & Presentation Dinner in Springfield on Sunday, January 31st.
The Annual Recognition & Presentation Dinner recognizes members of the community for their relentless commitment as they aid others in experiencing the fullness of life. In addition, the occasion celebrates shared accomplishments in the ongoing struggle against the social ills of communities as well as the vision to play a role in helping members of the community experience a more vibrant life.
“The Basilica of the Holy Apostles works tirelessly at building a stronger and better community for all individuals,”
said PMAI President Dr. Kishore. “I am deeply honored to be recognized by this group as helping people experience a happy and fulfilled life is a cause I work endlessly to achieve.”
Dr. Kishore has been a practicing public health scientist for over 30 years and has established the “sobriety maintenance”
treatment method at PMAI. This unique health model stresses the prescription of non-toxic substances, provides patients with coping skills they need to remain sober and tailors treatment to specific medical conditions.
Dr. Kishore also founded the National Library of Addictions (NLA) in Brookline in 1993, which is an intellectual gathering place for health care professionals and community members working to overcome the effects of addictions.
