Book Description :

My name is Abdullah Ghali and I am a first year Medical Student at The University of Texas Health Center, located in San Antonio, Texas. In 2014, I moved to the United States from Jordan to pursue an education in medicine. In 2018, I graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelor's of Science in Biology.Upon examining the literature, I realized there was a lack of personal memoirs of immigrants coming to study in the United States. Therefore, I decided to write this book in the hope of giving detailed accounts of what it felt like studying as an immigrant. With the constant discussion of immigration in the United States, I realized how valuable personal reflections would be. While in some parts it may seem that I am constantly criticizing my experience, these insights are by no means about me degrading my experience here in the United States. I absolutely love every part of my development not only in terms of academics but also in my character. I cherish every single struggle and moment that has allowed me to become where I am today. While I am currently a medical student and would love to help anyone by providing insight to gain an acceptance to a United States medical school, this book does not go about the exact methodology of how I did so. It is meant for any person to be able to pick up and read. The language is very simple; however, I attempted to detail my experiences as much as possible. The main goal is to allow the reader to live through the experiences.I did add my essays at the end of the book, however, for those who bought this book with the hope of getting any insight on the mindset of undergraduate student wanting to go to medical school. I added my personal statement as well as detailed experiences of my volunteering, organizational experiences and some awards I won along the way. For those who are interested in pursuing an education in medicine, I would like to congratulate on you choosing, what I believe, the most rewarding and vital profession existent. If I could offer two quotes that have been the recurring themes in my journey, I would choose these: "Knowledge is to know tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is to know not to put it in a fruit salad" Miles Kington"However, to save a life would be as great a virtue as to save all of mankind. "- Quran 5:32While this may be a cliche, it is very important to know why you are wanting to become a doctor. That reason has to be strong enough to get you through the endless nights of hard work that this journey at times will demand. I find it very rewarding to listen to other people's reasons as it inspires me and allows me to develop mine. The path to medical school is a very unconventional road for international students as most people will finish their medical education overseas and then do their residency in the US. In my opinion, I would highly recommend going through the longer and more strenuous process of gaining an acceptance at a United States medical school after pursuing a United States bachelor's degree because there is an overall uplifting and maturing process that the medical system instills in its candidates that I find very unique. The venue to reach out to the stars, pursue high reaches in terms of expanding on one's knowledge and following one's passion is very highly encouraged in the United States. The diversity not only in the patient population but also within the colleagues you will develop will enrich your experience still further. I would like to thank Naser Ghali, Lara Ghali, Mohammed Ghali, Wafaa Al-Hindi, Qayss Al-Sayyad, Kathryn Harrington and Nick Logan, as well as many of my other friends and family, for their contributions to my medical journey.

Book Description :

There is an old adage “Like father, like son”. My father and I do indeed share many similarities – for example, our physical characteristics are eerily similar – same height, same shoe size. Fortunately for me, my father had impeccable taste in clothing. Over the years, I “borrowed” quite a few of my father’s sport jackets – each one holds a special place in my heart. Every time I see, touch or wear one of them, I wonder what my father was doing or the people he was meeting while wearing them. We also both chose to devote our professional lives to gastroenterology. In 2015, I was honored with an invitation to deliver the David Sun Memorial Lecture at the Annual Meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology. As I reviewed the list of distinguished gastroenterologists who had spoken before me, I was surprised and humbled to see that my father had also given the David Sun Lecture in 1987. It was fun to share this story with the audience at the start of the talk though I didn’t tell them the origin of the perfectly fitting sport coat I was wearing.

Health and Medicine Among First generation African Immigrants in the United States

Book Description :

The focus of this research will be on the medicines and health practices of first-generation African immigrants in the U.S. and the role they play in an increasingly holistic formal American health field. For the Eurocentric American, traditional African practices are predominantly viewed as antithetical to modernity; for the Afrocentric American, White western medicine can represent a rejection of African culture and thus one’s complete identity. The dynamic of these two perspectives within African immigrants in the U.S. is proficient in both resolving health crises and creating cultural conflict. The rise of alternative medicine within the formal American health field may illuminate the benefits of a multifaceted approach to medicine in popular media and possibly ease the tensions for first-generation African immigrants and their descendants. This research aims to explore first-generation African immigrant attitudes towards health and medicine in the United States through ethnographic accounts and observe the extent to which the acceptance of alternative medicine applies to African-derived practices.

Book Description :

According to the Latina health paradox, Mexican immigrant women have less complicated pregnancies and more favorable birth outcomes than many other groups, in spite of socioeconomic disadvantage. Alyshia Gálvez provides an ethnographic examination of this paradox. What are the ways that Mexican immigrant women care for themselves during their pregnancies? How do they decide to leave behind some of the practices they bring with them on their pathways of migration in favor of biomedical approaches to pregnancy and childbirth? This book takes us from inside the halls of a busy metropolitan hospital’s public prenatal clinic to the Oaxaca and Puebla states in Mexico to look at the ways Mexican women manage their pregnancies. The mystery of the paradox lies perhaps not in the recipes Mexican-born women have for good perinatal health, but in the prenatal encounter in the United States. Patient Citizens, Immigrant Mothers is a migration story and a look at the ways that immigrants are received by our medical institutions and by our society

Book Description :

The study of migrant populations poses unique challenges owing to the mobility of these groups, which may be further complicated by cultural, educational, and linguistic diversity as well as the legal status of their members. These barriers limit the usefulness of both traditional survey sampling methods and routine public health surveillance systems. Since nearly 1 in 7 people in the world is a migrant, appropriate methodological approaches must be designed and implemented to capture health data from populations. This effort is particularly important because migrant populations, in comparison to other populations, typically suffer disparities related to limited access to health care, greater exposure to infectious diseases, more occupational injuries, and fewer positive outcomes for mental health and other health conditions. This path-breaking handbook is the first to engage with the many unique issues that arise in the study of migrant communities. It offers a comprehensive description of quantitative and qualitative methodologies useful in work with migrant populations. By providing information and practical tools, the editors fill existing gaps in research methods and enhance opportunities to address the health and social disparities migrant populations face in the United States and around the world.

Book Description :

It was only a coincidence that the NHS and the Empire Windrush (a ship carrying 492 migrants from Britain's West Indian colonies) arrived together. On 22 June 1948, as the ship's passengers disembarked, frantic preparations were already underway for 5 July, the Appointed Day when the nation's new National Health Service would first open its doors. The relationship between immigration and the NHS rapidly attained - and has enduringly retained - notable political and cultural significance. Both the Appointed Day and the post-war arrival of colonial and Commonwealth immigrants heralded transformative change. Together, they reshaped daily life in Britain and notions of 'Britishness' alike. Yet the reciprocal impacts of post-war immigration and medicine in post-war Britain have yet to be explored. Contagious Communities casts new light on a period which is beginning to attract significant historical interest. Roberta Bivins draws attention to the importance - but also the limitations - of medical knowledge, approaches, and professionals in mediating post-war British responses to race, ethnicity, and the emergence of new and distinctive ethnic communities. By presenting a wealth of newly available or previously ignored archival evidence, she interrogates and re-balances the political history of Britain's response to New Commonwealth immigration. Contagious Communities uses a set of linked case-studies to map the persistence of 'race' in British culture and medicine alike; the limits of belonging in a multi-ethnic welfare state; and the emergence of new and resolutely 'unimagined' communities of patients, researchers, clinicians, policy-makers, and citizens within the medical state and its global contact zones.
