PAH Commemorates Martin Luther King Jr. with Day of Service Celebration

Cultural-Competence-Committee-with-Dr.-AysolaFor some, 2016 marks a time of celebration and progress, while for others it is a time of uncertainty. In the early days of the New Year, the Pennsylvania Hospital Culture Competence Committee sponsored the “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service Celebration,” to honor the life and legacy of Rev., Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Fifty years after Dr. King’s speech to the Medical Committee for Human Rights in 1966, we’re taking the time to reflect on how his legacy can be used to eliminate the health care disparities that still persist among the underserved and underrepresented in our nation today.
