About the Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium
Dr. Ala Sanford founded the BDCC in early April 2020 to provide ACCESS, EMPATHY, and ACTION to all residents of Southeastern Pennsylvania. The mission of the BDCC is to mitigate the morbidity and mortality associated with COVID-19. To date, BDCC has tested over 23,000 patients and vaccinated over 9,000 Philadelphians, with over 46, 000 registered.
BDCC provides barrier free COVID-19 testing and vaccines at various locations throughout the hardest hit sections of Southeast Pennsylvania at no out-of-pocket cost.
BDCC focuses on African Americans in Southeastern PA, as the rates of COVID-19 disease and death have been greatest in this group. BDCC does not discriminate and will test all who come to our sites and require our services.
