Kaiser Permanente Employees Volunteer Statewide During Martin Luther King Jr. Day Of Service

More than one thousand Kaiser Permanente Hawaii physicians, staff and their families participated in community projects statewide in an annual day of service honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Established a decade ago as a company-wide community service tradition, Kaiser Permanente employees spent their holiday not with a “day off,” but a “day on,” volunteering their time and efforts at eight different sites on Oahu, Maui and the Big Island.

“We are proud to continue our annual tradition of honoring the spirit of service on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day,” said Geoffrey Sewell, MD, president and executive medical director of Hawaii Permanente Medical Group. “We feel privileged to be supporting efforts that preserve and benefit the cultural health and wellness of our own communities here in Hawaii.”
