UHS at International Health Conference in Iran

Professor Nadia Naseem, Pro Vice Chancellor of the University of Health Sciences (UHS), is currently on an official visit to Iran, where she participated as an invited speaker at the Fourth International Conference on Health in Arbaeen. The conference took place on Monday at the Iran University of Medical Sciences in Tehran and saw the attendance of numerous health experts from across the globe.

Professor Naseem was part of a distinguished Pakistani delegation that included Prof. Mulazim Bukhari, Prof. Kamran Chaudhary, Prof. Salma Aslam Kundi, Dr. Azhar Jadoon, and Prof. Zahid Bashir. The delegation contributed significantly to the discourse on health challenges faced during religious pilgrimages, a key theme of the conference.

In her presentation, Professor Naseem focused on the pathophysiologic mechanisms related to mental health pathology and emphasized the role of faith and religious coping strategies in addressing these issues. She introduced a pioneering concept of tele-health consultations, inspired by the “Spiritual and Religious Competencies Project (SRCP)” developed by the University of Alabama. Her insights were well-received, earning considerable acclaim from the audience.

As a gesture of goodwill, Professor Naseem presented the UHS booklet and a commemorative souvenir to Professor Abdolreza Pazouki, Chancellor of the Iranian University of Medical Sciences. This exchange symbolized the strengthening ties between the two institutions.

The conference also provided a valuable platform for Professor Naseem to network with representatives from leading institutions in seven Arabic countries. Discussions centered on potential collaborations in areas such as tele-consultations, student training sessions, and webinars in histopathology. To further facilitate cooperation in medical education and research, a WhatsApp group comprising histopathology experts from various Arab countries was established.

The conference underscored the importance of international collaboration in addressing global health challenges and highlighted the University of Health Sciences’ commitment to advancing medical education and research through innovative and collaborative approaches.
