Collaboration Between Science and Faith Leaders

Honorable Minister of Religion and Interfaith Harmony Maulana Noor ul Haq Qadri chaired the riveting and insightful special session on Collaboration between Science and Faith Leaders. Recognizing that their patients and congregants often face concerns that overlap science and faith, health professionals and faith leaders came together in this session to provide insights on how the two academies can collaborate better to provide information to each other on scientific advancements and the faith perspectives underlying the concerns, and ultimately serve their patients and congregants even better.

  • It was an excellent conference well planned, presented, and well attended.  If individually traveling we may have never enjoyed the kind of reception the participants received throughout their stay in Iran.

  • Thank you very much for the wonderful work you do. I have seen it first hand in Karbala during the Arbaeen camps and my son was fortunate to participate in two of the missions. I have made a donation today.

  • I cannot express the profound impact IMI has had on my life: from the incredible opportunity to serve on the Arbaeen Medical Mission to the insightful career guidance and special programs for Young Leaders that I’ve benefitted from!

  • If InshAllah, I secure a residency in the upcoming match, I will owe the organizers and the speakers at the seminar more than they will take credit for.

  • IMI has been my outlet for philanthropic work since before I entered into high school. It is through IMI that I see my efforts, here in New Jersey, manifest into something much greater around the world. IMI has helped me realize that ambition alone is not enough to change the world; in order to achieve the changes we wish to see in this world we require ambition, vision, and most importantly execution. That is why I have joined IMI, so that my ambition and vision can meet their execution.
