Program Manager, American Muslim Health Professionals
Khadija Gurnah is the Program Manager for the American Muslim Health Professionals’ (AMHP) Affordable Care Act outreach and enrollment efforts. Khadija earned her Master’s in Health Management from the Yale School of Public Health. She has worked in community health, focusing on inequities in healthcare delivery, and has published papers and articles on healthcare delivery to minority populations. Under Khadija’s direction, AMHP launched the first national grassroots initiative of its kind in the Muslim American community. With a limited budget and only seven on-the-ground organizers, AMHP mobilized 81 partner institutions, resulting in thousands of enrollments and newly formed relationships between clergy and civic leaders across religious, ethnic, and racial lines.
