Keeping the Dream Alive


From William Corbett, MD, Vice President Community Practices, UMMMG, Associate Professor of Medicine, UMMS:

“Dr. Robert Johnson gave the keynote address at UMass Memorial Health Care's Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration on January 18th.  The title was, ‘Keeping the Dream Alive: A 21st Century Perspective.' His riveting, inspiring oratory reminded those in attendance of Dr. King himself.  He used historical references, personal influences and real-life examples to explain the work we need to emulate.  We all left with a great sense of obligation to continue the great work of Dr. King.”
