Imani Clinic - Eighteen Years of Service!
Imani, a Swahili word meaning "faith", was selected partially for the African philosophy of community embodied in the principles of Kwanzaa, an African-American year-end tradition. The word also represents the faith that we as students have in the strength and worthiness of our communities, as well as the faith we hope to foster within those communities of the ability of the health care system to address their medical needs and social realities. Learn more about our ten-year history in the 'About Imani Clinic' section, as well as in article by LaDonna White, MD: The Fulfillment of a Dream- How Imani Clinic was Founded.
In addition to providing urgent health care and preventive medical services to Oak Park residents each Saturday, Imani Clinic also conducts community outreach through events such as the annual Ulezi Family Health Faire. Each year, this event provides blood pressure screenings, health education resourses, and hosts community based organizations dedicated to providing education and health information. See the ' Community Outreach' section of this site for more information on Imani Clinic's community involvement.
