Forum on Formation of Muslim Healthcare Network in Phila

Posted on April 05, 2010

Muslim groups building health network

Beginning with the Philadelphia area, the Muslim Alliance in North America’s SHARE Centers and the Islamic Social Services Association of Philadelphia are working to build a network of existing free health care clinics by networking with tens of thousands of Muslim physicians, nurses, dentists, optometrists, health care providers, and private ambulance services.

This network, which will begin in Philadelphia, will also lay the groundwork for additional clinics that will reach out to the unserved or underserved citizens, particularly of America’s inner city neighborhoods where there are over 30 million Americans uninsured, of which 50% – 60% are African American and Hispanic.

The groups are sponsoring a presentation on the initiative at a health care forum on April 24th beginning at 1:30pm at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts at Broad and Spruce Streets in Philadelphia.

The forum will be followed by an entertainment program at 6pm.  Tickets for the full day of activities are $50.  Register here.

For more information, call Qasim Khan at 773-557-9315 or Rashidah Abdul Khabeer at 215-432-6691.
