The Feminist Women's Health Center is proud to be honored at the 21st annual Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Awards. Presented by Emory's Rollins School of Public Health & Goizueta Business School, FWHC received an award "For Unwavering Dedication Towards Building Community Through Unity, Service, and Collaborative Responsibility."
More about the MLK Service Awards from Emory: "For over twenty years, the Rollins School of Public has honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Service Awards Program. The genesis of this celebration grew out of dialogue in 1993 between Dr. Joyce Essien and then Dean of the School of Public Health, Ray Greenburg where they agreed that it was time to align the mission and values of Public Health with the precepts of social justice. With the support of our current Dean James Curran and the diligent work of faculty, staff, and students, this program has grown to be a major event among the calendar of King Week activities held at Emory. Our program is unique as the only event that has consistently recognized and celebrated people and organizations in greater Atlanta whose work exemplifies the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."
