Describe your contributions to and achievements in family planning.

Since 2011, I have been caring underserved communities and vulnerable populations by decreasing barriers to accessing health care services, especially immigrant population from Syria.
In 2012, I have worked voluntarily in Hospital Mère Et Enfant, Mauritania, Africa. I have worked to improve maternal and child health through improved pregnancy planning in Africa and shared my experiences with doctors and midwives.

What sparked your passion for family planning?

I lost a patient in delivery room who had 7 children and, ever since then, I have spent time volunteering to help raise awareness and funds for contraception. My passion is working with students and residents and share my experience with them about maternal health, domestic violence against women, adolescent pregnancies and health problems of immigrant population from Syria.

Give one or two examples of how you display leadership in your family planning work.:

As a preceptor, I have contributed to the training of over 5000 health professionals, including resident doctors, medical students, nurses and midwives.

If you are named a winner of 120 under 40, how will you use this new platform and the $1000 grant to advance your work? :

If I will be named as a winner, I would definitely organize more meetings to reach more doctors, midwives and medical students all over the country to share and express the importance of contraception and to teach how vital is it for mankind and for our future.
