Join our Membership Organizations, Mission Health and MAHEC, to celebrate diversity in healthcare at Mission Health and to honor the nominees and recipients of this year’s Spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. Award.
The Spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Awards are given annually to Mission Health and MAHEC team members who have been nominated by their peers or leaders for their ability to overcome barriers that separate human beings, and who see diversity as an opportunity rather than an obstacle to impact change. A partnership between Mission Health and MAHEC, the award celebrates diversity in healthcare and the people who carry on the spirit, leadership, and vision of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to influence unity, equality, and justice in both the workplace and their communities.
Doors open at 11:30 a.m. for conversation and refreshments. The ceremony will start at noon and end at 1:30 p.m.
- The ceremony will be held at the Mission Health A-B Tech Conference Center (Victoria Rd., A-B Tech Asheville Campus) and feature songs by Mars Hill Gospel Choir, a presentation of awards and a special presentation by keynote speaker Dayna Bowen Matthew.
- Light bites and refreshments will be served. No RSVP required.
