NorthShore’s online source for timely health and wellness news, inspiring patient stories and tips to lead a healthy life.

On Monday, Jan. 17, we honor the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who refused to accept the segregation, inequality and systemic racism of mid-20th century America and called upon all Americans to strive for a more just and equitable future for all people.
In these more recently turbulent times, our national consciousness has awakened with the realization that there is much more work to be done in the quest for unity.
“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" noted Dr. King. All of us at NorthShore have everyday opportunities, both in our personal lives and in the public setting, to further Dr. King's vision of unity and hope. In our work at NorthShore, we better the world each day in serving our patients and communities, as well as working to ensure that everyone we work with and serve feels listened to and respected.
Other ways to promote the legacy of Dr. King include:
At NorthShore, we recognize that making sure all people are seen, heard, and valued is at the core of our mission. Additionally, dedicate a few minutes of reflection this week to learn something you didn't know about Dr. King and his work.
