"The Brevard Music Center saw that there was nowhere for those without health insurance to go to get tested for free in Transylvania County. We felt we had to do something for the most vulnerable of our neighbors."
Mark Weinstein, President and CEO, Brevard Music Center

"Pisgah Health Foundation is pleased to be able to collaborate with Mark Weinstein and Brevard Music Center in providing COVID-19 testing, filling a much needed gap in our community."
