About The Event

Physician Virtual Social 091720
Event Type: Physician Event

Although COVID-19 has affected more than 5 million people in the U.S., reports show the infectious disease has run rampant among Black communities more than any other race. It begs the question: what can we do as health care providers to close this gap?

Our Primary Care doctors are teaming up with the top Virginia medical experts to discuss the key to overcome this racial health disparity. We invite you to join the discussion and weigh-in your thoughts and questions.
