In honor Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, SUNY Upstate Medical University will host a conference on “Diversity and Affirmative Action for the 21st Century” Jan. 19 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. The conference, which is free and open to the public, will be held in Medical Alumni Auditorium of Weiskotten Hall, 766 Irving Ave., on the Upstate Medical University campus.
