On Jan. 15, the UT Southwestern community honored the legacy of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at its 33rd annual campus commemorative celebration. Dr. Dayna Bowen Matthew, keynote speaker and Professor at the University of Virginia School of Law, talked about the history of racial inequality in the American health care system and how to address ongoing disparities.

In honor of Dr. King’s legacy of community service, each year the ceremony also recognizes UTSW students who actively serve others through their own community service projects. Doctor of physical therapy student Christina Martinez was awarded the Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship for Community Service Award. Medical students Cameron Ward and Brandon Winward were recognized as finalists. Flip through the photo gallery below.
