A live stream option will link employees to the event beginning at 11:50 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 21.

"We know it can be difficult to travel to the main campus or to take a break from a busy work day. That's why our committee wanted to add this option so everyone can participate in this inspiring, respected and well-attended event," said Myrna Newland, M.D., director of UNMC's Equity Office and coordinator of the Martin Luther King Day Commemoration Committee.
