On June 10, 2022 By MPAC
When it comes to health equity, many Muslims have seen firsthand the importance of advocating for health equity. At the 2022 National American Muslim Policy conversation, we discussed why it's crucial for Muslims to be accounted for in decisions that impact healthcare access, actions taken by Muslims to address healthcare gaps, additional needs in the community and potential future directions. This panel was moderated by Sana Syed, Vice President, American Muslim Health Professionals and featured Dr. Aasim Padela, Director of the Initiative on Islam and Medicine, MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics, Dr. Adel Syed, CEO, Umma Clinic, and Dr. Quaiser Abdullah, Assistant Professor in the Communication and Social Influence Department in Klein College of Media and Communication at Temple University. MPAC co-hosted the inaugural National American Muslim Policy Conference which brought together elected officials, experts, and leaders from across the nation to discuss our community's policy priorities and needs. We are proud to have worked alongside American Muslim Health Professionals, Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, Illinois Muslim Civic Coalition, and Emgage Action as part of the Community Collaborative Initiative. The Community Collaborative Initiative, a community-based action research project hosted by Indiana University's Lilly School of Philanthropy, we cordially invite you to participate in the inaugural National American Muslim Policy Conference. ---------- Subscribe to MPAC's channel: http://bit.ly/MPACYouTube Like MPAC on Facebook: http://fb.com/mpacnational Follow MPAC on Twitter: http://twitter.com/mpac_national Follow MPAC on Instagram: http://instagram.com/mpac_national Visit MPAC's website: http://mpac.org About the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) We improve public understanding and policies that impact American Muslims by engaging our government, media, and communities.
