Dr. Hina Chaudhry, Associate Professor of Medicine and Director of Cardiovascular Regenerative Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, will discuss her journey in medicine and her groundbreaking research on the use of developmental genes and stem cells to regenerate cardiac tissue, including key insights gained from both science and inspiration. Hakim Ilyas Kashani, a practitioner of Traditional Islamic Healing and Medicine (TIHM), will focus on both the physical and subtle heart and its impact on the body. Across history and cultures, the heart has been regarded as the vital center of the human being and also an organ of inspiration and knowledge. The Prophet Muhammad famously said, “There is a piece of flesh in the body which if sound the whole body is sound, and if corrupt the whole body is corrupt. That is the heart.” Join us for special talks on the nature, function and health of the heart from modern and traditional medical perspectives.
