Workshop: Gut to Heart

To kick off Islamabad's conference activities, on Friday, December 27, 2019, IMI hosted a special workshop on Gut to Heart health. The session featured Yawer Nensey, MD (Gastroenterologist at Florida Gastroenterology Associates). The moderator for the session was Syed Wajih Rizvi, MD and featured an in-depth discussion of the connection of diet and nutrition to heart and overall health.


Following the Gut-to-Heart workshop was an important session on cardio-metabolic health by Arshed Quyyumi, MD, FRCP, FACC (Professor of Cardiology at Emory University, USA), former IMI Global President from the United States.

NGO Brainstorming Session

Following the two scientific sessions in the morning, the group flight arrived in Islamabad and checked into their accommodations at the conference venue, the famous Serena Hotel in Islamabad.

As Islamabad serves as the political hub of the country, it remains the home of politics, nonprofit organizations, lobbyists and national and foreign actors. Noting the neccesity to engage all parts of this vibrant community, IMI hosted a special NGO Brainstorming Session by invitation only, to help coordination and efficiency amongst those working in Pakistan.

  • 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.

  • I want to thank you all for giving me such a great opportunity to be a part of your team (in Haiti). It was a unique experience and I really enjoyed working with you all.

  • 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.
