AMC is pleased to be partnering with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) for this webinar program in which Chaplain Ibrahim Long will lead a discussion on Physician-Assisted Suicide, also known as Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID), which is now legal in Canada and several US states. Participants will explore our religious, legal, and professional responsibilities when asked, as Muslim Chaplains working in healthcare, to support a patient who is seeking MAID.

Ibrahim J. Long is a professionally-trained chaplain with over a decade of experience supporting diverse individuals and families in healthcare, educational, and community-based institutions. He completed a two-year spiritual care residency program at St. Joseph’s Healthcare (Hamilton, ON) and holds degrees in Religious Studies (BA), Islamic Studies and Christian-Muslim Relations (MA), and Islamic Chaplaincy (GC). Presently, Ibrahim serves as a School Chaplain for Edmonton Islamic Academy, as well as a Hospital Chaplain for Alberta Health Services and volunteers as a Muslim Chaplain at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT).

AMC Members along with students of Hartford Seminary & Bayan Claremont’s Islamic Chaplaincy Programs are invited to join this conversation. For more information contact AssociationOfMuslimChaplains@gmail.com
