Norwegian American Hospital to Celebrate the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

By Norwegian American Hospital

Norwegian American Hospital welcomes the community to join the hospital as we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, January 19, 2015, 2 – 3 p.m., during a free program in the Hospital’s Fifth Floor POB Conference Room.

The 4th Annual MLK Day Recognition program is titled,”Dr. King: A Legacy of Service.” Admission is free, but we encourage you to bring a non-perishable food item.

The afternoon includes a keynote address from Hermene Hartman, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of N’Digo Magazine. Hartman also served as vice chancellor of the City Colleges of Chicago.

Throughout the week of January 19, the Hospital will be collecting can goods or non-perishable food items, which will be donated to the New Life Covenant Food Pantry.
