Wednesday, May 27, 2020

Join us on Wednesday, May 27th, for a combined call at 12pm for both philanthropic partners and nonprofit leaders!

Dr. Joan Duwve, who started this spring as Public Health Director for DHEC, will join us to discuss:

  • DHEC’s overall work and findings (think data) related to the COVID-19 pandemic to help guide our work;
  • Ways in which we may be able to assist DHEC in achieving its mission, in particular helping with #StaySCStrong and getting out important public health messages; and
  • Advice and guidelines for leading our organizations and helping stop the spread. 
The call will be facilitated by Erika Kirby (Executive Director, BlueCross BlueShield of SC Foundation and Together SC Board member) and Forrest Alton (Founder & President, 1000 Feathers and Together SC Board member).
