Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration

MCW Celebrates MLK Day with virtual event on "Think Next Gen"

On January 17, 2022, the MCW community came together for the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Day celebration.  This year’s theme was See Yourself in Dr. Martin Luther King's Legacy of Service as we elevate MCW's Strategic Priority of Think Next Gen. At MCW, Think Next Gen reflects the vital role that education plays in our just cause to improve health for all.  The event was held virtually and attracted some 250 faculty, staff, students and community members. 

The goal of Think Next Gen is to inspire the next generation of students to be innovators and thought leaders. Our MCW students representing each campus shared how they are inspired by Dr. King’s legacy to move forward in medicine and research. MCW faculty spoke on how the institution is innovating curricula through education in health equity and cultural humility to foster the excellence of future of health professionals. BlackArtsMKE.org provided two energizing performances that uplifted the spirits of all who attended.
