Events honoring Martin Luther King Jr.

496664943(1)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—including members of our Duke Regional family—answer that question by coming together to serve their neighbors and communities.

January 19, 2015, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It is also observed as a national day of service, providing a perfect opportunity to honor King’s legacy. We encourage you to volunteer, if you are able, during the Day of Service and help give back to the community. Some of our employees will be packaging thousands of meals for United Way of the Greater Triangle through Stop Hunger Now.

Events at Duke Regional
Duke Regional will hold two events to honor King’s life and work. A chapel service with guest preacher Reverend Jerome Washington, pastor of Mount Vernon Baptist Church in Durham, will be held at 1 pm January 20 in the hospital chapel; and a candlelight vigil will be held Tuesday, January 20 at 2:30 pm, on the hospital’s second floor.

Thank you for helping make our community a great place to live.
