The Detroit JCRC and Council of Islamic Organizations of Michigan joined hands to organize a free medical screening fair, primarily for residents of Detroit who are working poor lacking health insurance but do not qualify for government-provided or other no- or low-cost health care programs. Screenings were provided by Jewish and Muslim doctors, nurses, medical students, social workers and other community volunteers. The clients served at the event received access to potentially life-saving information and referrals, and the participating Muslim and Jewish health care professionals and students engaged together in a meaningful interfaith experience and had an opportunity to get to know colleagues in each other’s faith community.
