IMI’s 6th International Conference: Advances in Health Care took place at the Sheraton Toronto Parkway North in Canada, from August 30 to September 1, 2013. With enthusiastic participants from all over the world, dedicated speakers and committed volunteers, this year’s international conference was a great success. The Conference was accredited by the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada for 10 CME credit hours and included countless occasions to develop networks within the community and brainstorm on ways to advance IMI and protections for health workers, our membership (professional & associate) and health. Ulema, community leaders and a diverse group of conference attendees also discussed sensitive matters of Islamic Medical Ethics and the IMI Bioethics Guidelines for Muslim Health Professionals as a starting point on these issues. Social activities allowed for the generosity of our community’s spirit to be showcased through the IMI Gala & Fundraising Dinner for victims of anti-Shia violence in Pakistan, as well as deeper bonds to be formed through the Toronto Harbour Boat Cruise. IMI is grateful to all participants, supporters, volunteers and sponsors for making this conference a success and your feedback to keep enhancing IMI.
