    Commemorating Martin Luther King Jr

    From Dean Patricia Davidson: "MLK's dream lives on in all that nursing stands for today: equal rights and health care for all—black, white, Hispanic, LGBTQ, poor, wealthy, everybody. We should take this holiday to pause and recommit ourselves—perhaps now more than ever—to eliminating social and health disparities and championing diversity, equality, and social justice for ALL. We can and must do better.  And together we will.  As you enjoy the holiday, please take a few peaceful moments to consider how you—and we—can continue to lead and collaborate in efforts to make our nation, our community, and our school a better place."
