About Mutaal: Mutaal's interest in Public Health derived from living in underserved communities in Pakistan and Sacramento. The healthcare disparities present in these communities pushed him to volunteer at Shifa Clinic, a student-run clinic, and devote his efforts to improving Health education resources and assisting in Mental Health outreach. Additionally, his involvement with mathematical modeling projects involving Epidemiology has also been a motivating factor in pursuing an MPH to fully realize the practical benefits of Public Health and Epidemiology. Moving forward, he hopes to open his own clinics that can assist underserved communities around the world.
