Webinar: A Window Into American Muslim Physicians

Join ISPU live for an interactive webinar on ISPU's report "A Window Into American Muslim Physicians: Civic Engagement and Community Participation". Report authors Dr. Wahiba Abu-Ras, Dr. Lance Laird  and Dr. Farid Senzai will present the findings from the first-of-its-kind portrait of American Muslim Physicians: demographic characteristics, identity and values, civic and political engagement, and challenges with discrimination. 

Representatives from the Islamic Medical Association of North America (IMANA) and Association of Physicians of Pakistani-Descent of North America (APPNA) will respond to the findings and engage in a lively discussion with the authors  on how to reduce workplace discrimination, increase political participation, and better leverage this segment of the physician workforce to enhance cultural competency within the American healthcare system.
