“What was true before COVID-19 is true now: We have real health disparities in our black communities. We see the trend and we’re taking action,” said Vicky Free, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Novant Health. “It’s vital all of our communities know how to stay healthy and leveraging trusted voices help bring increased relevance and attention. Doug and Anthony see what’s happening and are both committed to helping our community flatten the curve. We are thrilled their voices are amplifying the messages everyone needs to hear.”
To play on his familiar “6 minutes” rap line, Doug E. Fresh released a video on social distancing called “6 ft.” Click here to watch.
