Health Clinic Hours Expanding
IMAN's Health Clinic opened just over a decade ago with the intention of providing the under- and uninsured in the Chicago Lawn community with access to quality healthcare services. Since that time, the range of our services has steadily expanded, as has our reputation for being a helpful and welcoming clinic on the southwest side. With this growth came a milestone in November when IMAN welcomed it's first full-time Medical Director, Dr. Altaf Kaiseruddin.
Tomorrow marks another milestone. With the assistance of the health clinic's largest national partner Islamic Relief USA, as well as the Field Foundation of Illinois and Grant Healthcare Foundation, clinic hours will expand to include a third session, each Wednesday from 1 to 5PM. This move gives the health clinic the potential to serve over 50% more patients each year.
Dr. Kaiseruddin describes the expansion as, "a significant beginning step in the clinic's evolution toward making high quality care available to an ever-increasing number of people."
The expansion of clinic hours will soon be accompanied by nutrition and exercise classes thanks to a partnership with American Muslim Health Professionals, and facilitated by H.E.A.R.T. (Health Education, Advocacy, Research and Training).
IMAN's clinic functions with the support of foundations and partner organizations, but also with critical support from our base of supports. Please consider donating today to support our expanded services.
