A statement by Kathleen Sebelius
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary

U.S. Department of Health and Human ServicesWashington, D.C. – Today, we honor the remarkable life of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy of fighting for racial equality, human rights and economic justice.

These words continue to resonate, as there is nothing more essential to opportunity than good health.
