On Saturday, May 20, at 7 p.m. at the Woodstock Jewish Congregation will present an inter-faith event featuring Imam and cardiologist Dr. Reza Mansoor.
The presentation shares a title with Dr. Mansoor’s memoir - Stigmatized, From 9/11 to Trump and Beyond -- An American Muslim Journey. The event is free and open to the public.
Dr. Reza Mansoor is board certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiology and practices as a Cardiologist at Hartford Hospital. He is a past president of the Islamic Center of Connecticut and Islamic Council of New England. He is actively involved in the inter-faith community and provides ongoing didactic presentations on Islam.
In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, Dr. Mansoor watched with dismay as attitudes and stereotypes about Islam and about Muslims living in the United States hardened. In an effort to build understanding, Dr. Mansoor wrote his memoir Stigmatized: From 9/11 to Trump and Beyond – An American Muslim Journey.
