It is with great excitement that we announce the new American Muslim Health Professionals (AMHP) logo! AMHP recently re-branded itself to include a newly designed logo and color scheme. Purpose-driven branding is essential to the success of any non-profit organization. Our goal in redesigning our logo was to tell our story in a way that represents who we are, what we do and why we are the forefront of public health, social justice, and civic engagement.  

By re-branding AMHP, we seek to define and more clearly represent our purpose and mission. The objective of our re-branding is to move the brand up-market by communicating and emphasizing our message of “improving the health of Americans.” 


What do you think of our new logo? We'd love to hear from you!

The Impossible Conversation: Talking to Children About Islamophobia 

I’ve had plenty difficult conversations with my children, and I regularly coach other adults on how to best broach difficult topics. But this conversation felt fundamentally different. It was more than just breaking bad news or explaining a horrific period in our history. ​
