ISNA’s 52nd Annual Convention entitled, “Stories of Resilience: Strengthening the American Muslim Narrative” was a great success. The Convention was held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. It was a remarkable conference bringing the Muslim community together with informative sessions by many scholars and guest speakers. IMANA is pleased to contribute to this success in multiple ways. Apart from being a sponsor of the convention, IMANA’s health care sessions attracted great interest and many benefited from the free health screening and medical advice by IMANA health care professionals. IMANA physicians provided a rare opportunity to aspiring physicians to network and seek advice. IMANA members also enjoyed ISNA’s live entertainment and bazaar.
IMANA shared it’s dedicated room with AMHP, CCN and others to provide an informative Medical and Health Program with accomplished panelists. We discussed topics ranging from organ transplantation, biomedicine, medical advances and health care for the underserved. IMANA also provided interactive sessions to discuss women’s health, how to establish a free or low-cost health care clinics and networking opportunities for medical students. IMANA’s 4 hour CME session addressed end of life care and bio ethical decisions. Insha’Allah, next year we will continue to provide health sessions to discuss topics of emerging issues in the context of Muslim life.
