Two ING Presentations to Chaplains
ING speaker Ameena Jandali presented to two different chaplaincy programs in Berkeley this summer, the first at Sutter-Alta Bates, shown above, and the second to students at the Chaplaincy Institute. Both presentations included a description of specific issues that impact a Muslim patient. Following the three hour presentations, the students visited the local mosque in Berkeley where they attended Friday prayers and took a tour of the mosque.
