Thousands of Kaiser Permanente employees took time recently to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., by rolling up their sleeves and getting to work at schools, community centers and other sites across northern California.Here in the Napa-Solano Area, the work began with a prep day on Saturday, Jan. 13 and continued on Monday, Jan. 15 as approximately 150 Kaiser Permanente staff, physicians and their families from the Napa-Solano Area partnered with Rebuilding Together and school staff at Highland Elementary School in Vallejo to paint, garden, and beautify the teacher’s lounge.
In mid-November, Kaiser Permanente was pleased to once again support the North Bay Stand Down, a resource and support event for homeless veterans in Solano County. The event was held at the Dixon Fairgrounds and served nearly 100 veterans in need of medical, dental, employment and social support.
Chris Walker, MD, physician in chief for the Napa Solano service area and Chris Bandy, MD, Trauma medical director for KP Vacaville, who are both military veterans, spoke at the welcome ceremony, and assured the attendees that helping them get the resources they need is important to Kaiser Permanente.
