We are seeing COVID-19 cases plummeting in certain parts of the world in certain ages groups. Why? Well, once vaccinations for COVID-19 were made available, those who went and got vaccinated helped to increase herd immunity. Herd immunity happens when a large amount of people become immune to a disease, which makes the disease difficult to spread. Scientific evidence has already shown that the risks of the vaccines FAR outweigh its benefits (preventing severe cases of COVID-19 and death). Right now, President Biden has made a vaccine goal of having 70% of Americans get at least one shot of a vaccine by July 4th. Let's help increase herd immunity against COVID-19. Let's make a difference! Make a priority to arrange to get your vaccine today!.

We know that at the heart of health is the science. At our recent VIRTUAL Medical Mission trip, we not only helped give free care to over 1500 patients who could not afford it, but we also are using some of the pertinent clinical information to initiate clinical trials in Nigeria. The results of these clinical trials are to be used to help improve healthcare in Nigeria.
