Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. addressed an audience and stated that “life's most persistent and urgent question is, ‘what are you doing for others?’" Today his legacy is one of service and community impact. To honor that legacy, The School of Public Health participates in the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute sponsored by UW Health Sciences Schools, UW Health Sciences Administration and UW Medicine.
