“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘what are you doing for others” ~ MLK 

This quote is embedded in my 2013 dissertation on the professional socialization of underrepresented minority CRNAs and Nurse Anesthesia Students. And, this quote was repeated at the end of my acceptance speech for the AANA 2019 Agatha Hodgins Award. And, strongly believe it is vitally important that leaders of nursing organizations acknowledge Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
