The meeting was also attended by president of SCAO Hassan Omar who emphasised the need of health care professionals to educate the Somali community because most of the Somali community members still face language and social barriers. He also mentioned his observations as a community leader and the health care issues faced among his constituents. Dr. Omar Awale our local Somali Family Medicine physician who is also a YSPNA member acknowledged the need of more education and outreach programs to help Somali patients to understand the importance of health care and nutrition and implement it in their lifestyle. He also shared his views and problems he faces on a daily basis when he treats his Somali patients.
After refreshments were served the meeting was later adjourned for a later date on agreement that members establish a facebook account so that planning to hold an educational session for nurses can continue.
