Over half a century after the start of the Civil Rights movement, racial and ethnic disparities in quality and access persist in the ever-changing landscape of American healthcare. The 2015 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth will explore current limitations barring universal access to healthcare, and the underlying problems in order to contemplate opportunities for meaningful progress.
On Thursday, Jan. 22, our keynote speaker will be Dr. Wayne Riley, President-Elect of the American College of Physicians and Clinical Professor of Internal Medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. There is a reception at 5:30 PM and the event will begin at 6:00 PM in Oopik Auditorium at the Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center at Dartmouth.
