The award from the Marion County Branch of the NAACP was given to O'Malley for her inspiration to the citizens of the Florence and Marion County communities. The award also stated she has demonstrated herself as a "truly professional, caring community leader."

"It is a pleasure to honor such a phenomenal woman as Mrs. Christina O'Malley for her dedication and faithfulness to the citizens of Marion and Florence Counties," said Marvin Hemingway, President of the Marion County NAACP.

The Woman to Woman Conference is a ministry that encourages women to grow in Christ and make a godly impact in their home and community. The certificate was given to O'Malley for her dedication, commitment and valuable contributions to Marion and Florence County citizens.

"I am honored and humbled to have received this award. MUSC Health has a deep commitment to partner with our communities to eliminate disparities and improve access to healthcare," said Christina O'Malley.
