Dr. Memoona Hasnain’s work revolves around identifying and addressing patient, provider and system level barriers to the provision of quality health care for minority and vulnerable populations, with a focus on immigrant women from South Asia and the Middle East.
Hasnain spearheaded the development of the UIC College of Medicine’s Patient-centered Medicine Scholars Program, which provides medical students the opportunity to work directly with patients starting in their first year and to get involved with the care of under-served patients identified by local community agencies starting in the second year.
She teaches a popular course on international women’s health at the UIC School of Public Health.
