As part of the FastMed Cares Community Program, FastMed Urgent Care in Chapel Hill and Durham is a 2015 sponsor of Cadence, the UNC all-female A Cappella group founded to perform music through the voices of 16 diverse and talented young women with a passion for singing.

Cadence was founded by Mellissa “Lisa” Offoha in 2003.  After a great deal of hard work, Cadence established its presence as one of the most service-oriented groups on UNC-Chapel Hill’s campus.  Focused on philanthropy and performances at many on-campus and community events, their mission being to celebrate social justice, diversity, and personal empowerment through the music they create and perform.  Cadence also performs at private events and special occasions in addition to the Cadence concert they have at the end of each semester.

Cadence released their newest EP album, Brand New Behavior, on April 16th, 2011 and their first full length LP, Double Take, in May of 2013 – both albums are available for purchase on their website. For more album and booking information, please contact the group at cadenceacappella@gmail.com.

The FastMed Cares Program was created by FastMed Urgent Care to show FastMed’s commitment beyond patient urgent care treatment, through involvement through sponsorship and support of special programs for sports, education and community service.
