Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with UF Health on Jan. 15

Each January, the UF Health Shands Diversity Ambassadors host a spirited event to celebrate the legacy of the late Martin Luther King Jr. This year, the festivities begin at 11:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 15 in the UF Health Shands Hospital Atrium.

“The MLK event is one of our most well-attended Diversity events,” said Kristi Gaver, UF Health Shands Employee Relations event planner and project coordinator. “We typically have an enthusiastic response from employees and the program engages various members of the community in addition to our own employees.”

Look for more details about the MLK celebration and other upcoming diversity events in emails and future editions of Shands News.

“Diversity events are a unique way to engage not only our employees, but also our patients, visitors and guests,” Gaver said. “We love that these celebrations might teach someone something they didn’t know about history or a culture. And of course, we always have a lot of fun!”
