COVID-19 Testing, Advocacy & Education
African Americans are being diagnosed at a disproportionately higher rate than other groups and are dying from coronavirus at a higher rate than other groups. To address that need, the Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium was born. We have built a mobile COVID-19 testing operation. Our goal with the mobile unit is to provide a testing alternative that is BARRIER FREE to test for coronavirus disease in our hardest-hit areas in Philadelphia.
All funds will go to cover:
- Van Transportation
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Educational Materials
- Testing Supplies
We are testing for the virus with an FDA approved system of nasal swabs, NOT serum antibody testing.
Our mission is to provide COVID-19 testing, advocacy and educate African-Americans on coronavirus disease.
