This event is held annually to remember the contributions of Dr. King. During his life’s work, Dr. King was committed to caring about people from all walks of life. This is in direct correlation with our values here at UNC Hospitals. Our commitment to caring recognizes the importance of people as one of the pillars vital to our success as an organization.

The keynote speaker this year will be former Chapel Hill mayor Howard N. Lee. In 1969, Mr. Lee made international news when he was elected the first African American mayor of Chapel Hill. In 1976 he was appointed secretary of the Department of Natural and Economic Resources by Governor Jim Hunt, becoming the first African American to serve in a governor’s cabinet in the South. Mr. Lee is the founder of the Howard N. Lee Institute for Equity and Opportunity in Education.

Musical selections will be performed by the Aaron Gross trio. Please plan to attend what promises to be an uplifting event.  Encourage your colleagues and staff to do the same. Light refreshments will be served at the end of the program.

The annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. program is sponsored, in part, by the UNC Hospitals Shared Governance Nursing Diversity Council and the Employee Relations Department.
