Honoring Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr., once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is ‘What are you doing for others?’” Each year, people across the country answer that question by coming together to serve their neighbors and communities.

Duke Regional Hospital will hold two events to honor King’s life and work. A chapel service with guest preacher Reverend Frederick Davis of First Calvary Baptist Church will be held at 1 pm January 21 in the Hospital’s chapel; and Dr. Laura Early of All God’s Children United Methodist Church will speak about King’s vision in “Holding Hands” at noon January 22 in First Level Classroom. The public is welcome to attend both events.

January 20, 2014, is King’s birthday and a federal holiday. It is also observed as a national day of service, providing a perfect opportunity to honor King’s legacy as well as continue DRH’s tradition of caring for the community. Learn more about the Day of Service at http://mlkday.gov.
