"... Dr. Lettsome brought his medical and religious knowledge in the service of the Church by equipping faith leaders with life-saving information for their congregations. I am pleased to see the launching of the Vanbert Health Equity Project as it will expand the work he has already been doing to a larger network"

Dr. Lettsome, Good morning. I wanted to write to offer thanks to you for your efforts in helping support the early months (and continued work today) of the LIFELine Faith & Wellness Teleconference launched in March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Your reporting and insights of the situation that was unfolding as both a surgeon in New York, a pastor and a researcher provided tremendous insights and eased the minds of many in our Florida region who participated on the calls that you contributed to. Your support of our initiative launched by Dr. Emery Ailes, Rod Cunningham and myself (later joined by Dr. Ervin Jackson) has been tremendously important and one of the chief clinical voices that has brought wisdom and scientific evidence to the forefront (coupled with a spiritual underpinning) for the people that listen in and participate regularly. Thank you for all that you are doing to help the people everywhere through this continued saga that we are all living through across the globe.
