By Bahaa Elzein, President & Founder of UMHS Arab Student Union
I created The Arab Student Union (ASU) on the UMHS campus to diversify and unify the people, and to eliminate any false stereotype that one might have about a culture or faith.
My ASU members and I brought together over 10 cultures and faiths and held an event named “Faces of The World,” Friday, July 8, 2016 in the UMHS Auditorium.
The event was an educational and exciting show; it gave everybody on campus the opportunity to explore the different cultures and backgrounds.
Iran, Canada, India, USA (Mormonism), Iraq, Syria, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Mexico and Lebanon took place in this event.
Even in these bad times, we must teach our children that there are still truly amazing people in every culture and faith and that the good always outweigh the bad. Teach them to never be afraid.
Built in the tradition of the best U.S. universities, the University of Medicine and Health Sciences focuses on individualized student attention, small class sizes and recruiting high-quality faculty. For these reasons, UMHS is quickly becoming the school of choice among Caribbean medical schools.
