USciences, among other local universities, hospitals, and community organizations, has partnered with Together for West Philadelphia to donate a collective $72,000 to the Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium to support their efforts in providing barrier-free COVID-19 testing and vaccination in some of Philadelphia's hardest-hit communities. 

In addition to USciences, other contributors to this donation include Main Line Health, Penn Medicine, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Drexel University, Saint Joseph’s University, Villanova University, Villanova University’s M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing, Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic (Mercy Catholic Medical Center), and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. 

Together for West Philadelphia is a non-profit collaboration of hospitals, community organizations, universities, and social services agencies which work together to maximize the impact of health equity in West Philadelphia. 

Together for West Philadelphia recently partnered with Congressman Dwight Evans to discuss vaccine hesitancy and promote education and equitable care. Congressman Evans’ video message can be viewed here.
