Gordon Center for Integrative Science
Initiative on Islam and Medicine
Join the Initiative on Islam and Medicine at the University of Chicago in collaboration with Umma Clinic, Whitestone Foundation, and Worry Free Clinic for a 3-Day A-MAP (Oct. 18-20)conference exploring the religious dimensions of mental, reproductive, and sexual health.
A-MAP is the culmination of our Engaging Muslim Americans for Research on Community Health [E-MARCH] project through which a cohort of religious leaders, community health and social service workers, researchers, physicians, and patients from across the United States identified key community health research priorities for Muslim Americans. This conference provides a venue to examine these priorities by bringing together diverse stakeholders to discuss mosque-based, patient-centered approaches to addressing the religious dimensions of mental, reproductive, and sexual health.
Following A-MAP 2019 weekend, is the Islamic Bioethics Symposium (Oct. 21) which will highlight normative pieces on the same topics.
