Drug overdose deaths are sweeping across the Muslim community throughout the United States. Families are focusing on covering up the problem instead of seeking treatment.

Join Dr. Amer Syed Raheemullah, an addiction specialist and clinical instructor in psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford University, as we talk about the problem, why it exists, and faith-based programs for Muslims that exist locally.

12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. (Zuhr) | Saturday, August 6 | MCC Conference Room or watch and ask questions virtually at mcceastbay.org/live

Sponsored by MCC East Bay and Madina House
