A LEADING CENTER FOR RESEARCH, EDUCATION, AND DIALOGUE AT THE INTERSECTION OF THE ISLAMIC TRADITION AND CONTEMPORARY BIOMEDICINE
Your support enables us to carry out innovative Muslim health research, educate clinicians, students, and community members in Islamic bioethics, and convene workshops and conferences on Islam and biomedicine. Together, these overlapping activities 1) improve the health and healthcare experiences of American Muslims, and 2) cultivate a community of experts with a deep understanding of the Islamic tradition, modern bioethics, and contemporary healthcare.
The following video illustrates the importance of initiatives such as II&M.
