Facts & Faith Fridays began in March 2020 as a weekly call led by Massey director Robert Winn, M.D., with African American clergy in Virginia to address the disparate impact the pandemic has had on the Black community. The call has evolved to address higher rates of cancer and other health issues in diverse communities and continues to address COVID-19. With the exciting opportunity to hear from Dr. Sharpless, the Facts & Faith group is inviting all Virginians and interfaith communities to participate in this special webinar.
