Group seeks to build trust in healthcare among those who hesitate to vaccinate |  news |  Sioux City, IA

The Philadelphia hub is a pilot for the program Lazarex hopes to expand to other cities like Chicago and Los Angeles. The Lazarex Cancer Foundation hopes to provide a link between people of color and healthcare through their community impact program and a new cancer wellness hub in a predominantly Black neighborhood in West Philadelphia. Dornsife described it as “a safe space where they can feel comfortable coming in from information and connections to treatment and care.” Source

While the inequalities in healthcare and their consequences are societal problems that will require time and money to solve, Dornsife said they are working on community-based solutions now. Dornsife said those inequalities lead to avoidable deaths and a distrust in the system. The problem is highlighted by the hesitation of some to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

“Bringing together the resources that are out there that a community may not be aware of,” Dornsife said. “We want to address the health disparities that exist among our communities of color that COVID has so poignantly brought to light,” said Dornsife. “Insurance disparities, you know, a lot of assisted insurance plans don’t provide access to the latest and greatest treatments and drugs.”
