Connecting with communities [podcast] Audio Document uri icon
  • Munira MaalimIsaq remembers how difficult navigating the health care system was for her family after they moved to the U.S. from Somalia when she was 9 years old. Since then, she has wanted to help others in a similar position and give back to her community. Asking people what they need and providing education have been her keys to connection. MaalimIsaq, a nurse practitioner at HealthPartners Clinic Maplewood and former telemetry nurse at Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital, shares how she was able to help and serve members of the Somali community by dispelling COVID-19 myths, providing vaccines, and establishing a support group at mosques for those struggling with alcohol addiction.
