To the Medical School community,
Recently, our Muslim Medical Students Association (MMSA) took the initiative to ask fellow students what questions they may have about the Muslim community. This effort, named “Ask a Muslim,” is an excellent example of how we can initiate productive conversations about what makes each of us unique and distinct, and appreciate those differences. It is this kind of openness and exchange that we encourage and foster at UMMS. A better understanding about the various nuances of our community will broaden our perspectives, and ultimately, make us better researchers, teachers, and health care providers.
