Proposed by Quest Diagnosis
During the Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival from August 5-13, Quest Diagnostics offered attendees COVID-19 testing on the popular Massachusetts island off Cape Cod. CEO and President Steve Rusckowski stopped by to thank Quest employees for their assistance during this special event.

“The success of this event highlights just how incredible collaboration is within Quest Diagnostics,” said Scott Burlingame, senior continuous improvement manager, Quest Management System (QMS). “We incorporated teams from business operations, national point-of-care operations, quality management system, laboratory operations, logistics, patient services, marketing, billing and computer to coordinate this donation of tests in a short period of time. All members of the Quest team worked tirelessly over a 2 week period to ensure that Film Festival customers who wanted a COVID-19 test had a seamless experience.
Both Steve and Deb O’Hara-Rusckowski spoke at a Disparities in Healthcare event during the festival. They were joined by former US Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Hon. Louis Sullivan, MD and media pioneer Cathy Hughes, Founder and President of Urban One, Inc. to discuss racial disparities in health care.
Fast facts: It was the 20th anniversary of the Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival and the first time Quest has donated COVID-19 tests at this event.
