This summer, Covenant Presbyterian Church Durham received a grant from the PCUSA Disaster Assistance Program to establish the THESES (Tele-Health Equity, Spirituality, and Economic Survivorship) Project which will build a bidirectional communication platform to address some of the root causes of racial health disparities as highlighted by COVID-19, by engaging black faith leaders and the broader community to develop a roadmap to improve health and wellbeing in the Durham black community. 

While we are highlighting the Durham community as our target population, we know that other black communities are experiencing the same health challenges, and especially now because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

To achieve these objectives, the THESES Project will be offering several virtual events to engage the community in conversations about the effects of the COVID-19 virus and vaccine and how it is affecting their lives spiritually, physically, mentally, and economically. 

The THESES Project is extending an invitation to you to join Covenant members, community friends, black sorority and fraternity members, and faith leaders in a Community Conversation: “Should I Take the COVID-19 Vaccine?” Zoom meeting on Tuesday evening, January 19, 2020 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. This conversation will include straight talk from an African- American female who was the first individual to be administered the vaccine at Duke Health system and also a panel of professionals from Duke and North Carolina Central University who will share information about the COVID-19 vaccines. 

Information about connecting to the Zoom virtual meeting will be forth coming. We would love for you to join us. Please share with others and check back often for the Zoom information.
