This event is free and available to the public. OLLI membership is not required.

In his book "Healing Politics" Dr. Abdul El-Sayed draws on his experience as a physician, a public health official, and an epidemiologist to diagnose the causes of our broken political system. As an advocate for social justice, he moves beyond that and gives a prescription and a treatment plan.

This OLLI Reads event will be moderated by Dilip Das, Assistant Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, UM.

Dr. El-Sayed was born in Michigan to parents who emigrated to Detroit from Alexandria, Egypt. He graduated with distinction from the University of Michigan, attended Michigan’s Medical School before accepting a Rhodes Scholarship where he completed a Ph.D. in public health, and served as captain of the men’s lacrosse team. Upon returning to the states, he completed his medical training at Columbia.

Dr. El-Sayed ran for governor in 2018, coming in 2nd behind Gretchen Whitmer.

Our moderator, Dilip Das is Vice Provost for Diversity, Inclusion, & Student Affairs at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He holds a doctorate in higher education administration, a master’s in science education, and a bachelor’s degree in biology.
