  • Overview

    In 1992, after the verdict was handed down in the Rodney King trial, there were six days of rioting in south Los Angeles. Thousands were injured, more than 50 people were killed, and the city saw approximately one billion dollars in property damage. One of the few bright spots during this dark time was the formation of a new health care clinic in south Los Angeles, founded by Muslim medical students to serve a community in need. Almost two decades later, the University Muslim Medical Association (UMMA) clinic continues to serve their community, demonstrating the generosity of the Muslim faith. Host Dr. Cathleen Margolin learns more about the UMMA clinic from CEO and president, Dr. Yasser Aman.
