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 COVID19 Consortium was born. We have built a mobile COVID19 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 the following expenses for 1-year:
1. Van Transportation
2. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
3. Educational Materials
4. Testing Supplies
5. Staff support
6. PPE for those being tested
7. Supporting a sustainable program to improve health outcomes.
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 education for African-Americans on the coronavirus disease.
