  The Civil Rights of Health, Education, and Biology: MLK's Enduring Legacy  
(VTC)

Drs. Sharon and Craig Ramey, professors and distinguished research scholars at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, will present two seminars as part of the Fourth Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Week Seminars. The Rameys knew Dr. King and have been highly involved nationally in promoting and addressing issues of health disparities and race in the United States.

Why is eliminating health and educational disparities a crucial goal for the future of our nation? After reviewing historical scientific findings about the impact of race and poverty on the life course, Drs. Sharon and Craig Ramey will propose a new national agenda that links education and health as the most compelling ways to overcome the entrenched inequities and health disparities that endure as a legacy of racism and classism. The Rameys will also discuss specific actionable knowledge that can form a basis for how the Virginia Tech community can become engaged at all levels.
