These twin doctors are on the front line of the COVID-19 crisis
Drs. Elana McDonald and Delana Wardlaw talk about why African Americans are disproportionately affected by the virus.
Growing up in North Philadelphia, the Twin Sister Docs witnessed a massive gap between their community and its health care professionals. Boasting a largely African- American and Latin X population, the community’s needs were largely neglected by medical establishments made up primarily of non-African American doctors with no ties to the neighborhoods in which they practiced. This neglect not only produced skepticism; it also drove a wedge between the community and the medical services they desperately needed. The Twin Sister Docs, recognizing they have a unique role to play – now seek to bridge that gap, restore trust in health care professionals and transform these multicultural communities through reliable health care.
The Twins have worked with the likes of Pfizer, Temple Health, and the Biden Campaign to help bring awareness of marquee messages, products, and services to urban communities.
