The Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

This month, we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  This holiday is the only federal holiday in honor of an American civilian. 

Dr. King’s leadership in the nonviolent fight against discrimination earned him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, making him the youngest person who has ever become a Nobel Peace laureate. 

In honor of his legacy, All Children’s Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine is sponsoring a light breakfast and presentation on January 16th  at which James Page Jr. will be the keynote presenter. 

If you do not know James, let me tell you a little bit about him.  James currently serves as the newly appointed Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer for Johns Hopkins Medicine. 

In this role, he is responsible for diversity-based initiatives for the medical center, the medical school and the greater hospital network.

James also serves on the Corporate Advisory Committee for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation in Washington, DC and on the Disparities in Healthcare subcommittee. 

In addition, he is a featured contributor in Public Speaking in the Age of Diversity (Prentice Hall).

Please join us in celebrating Dr. King’s legacy and contribute in making his dream a reality.   

Enjoy your week!
