Muslim Run-RAGE

Muslim Run Selected A City Of Chicago Partner

IMAN and leaders of the Muslim Run campaign got the good news recently: IMAN has been selected as a delegate agency and partner of the City of Chicago through a Healthy Corner Store pilot project.  The City Ordinance approving this partnership passed through two City Council committees earlier in the month.  With this new partnership formed, we look to expand our efforts city-wide and strengthen relationships with store owners.  We will also be able to introduce our partner stores to City resources that can be beneficial for them in the long run, as they create and run on alternative and holistic business models. In gearing up for the upcoming summer with our corner store initiative, IMAN will be looking to engage more volunteers and leaders to help us get closer to the ideal corner stores we would like to see in urban neighborhoods.

Health Clinic Now Open All Week

The expansion of IMAN Health Clinic continues. The Clinic is now open Monday through Friday 9 AM–5 PM, in addition to our original hours of Sunday, 10 AM–2 PM. This is a remarkable development in several ways. First, we are continuing to increase access to our community that is in the middle of a medically underserved area. Second, we have moved into uncharted territory with our Clinic being open 5 1/2 days a week. Third, this represents the largest expansion of the Clinic at one time, increasing from six half-days a week to 11 half-days a week. As always, we will continue our best efforts to maintain the highest quality of care and standards of efficiency, and the commitment to a welcoming and culturally sensitive environment, on behalf of everybody involved with the Clinic. As we continue our journey, we will always need support and input from the communities that we serve and that support us. If anyone has any interest in health care and wishes to join our efforts, please contact us. Read More
