In an effort to "flatten the curve" in the growing Covid-19 pandemic, and at critical risk to herself with PPE, Asma Inge-Hanif started a campaign to use her established health center as a way to serve as a resource, testing site and critical care provider for those not being served, especially those in our communities without viable options. Her health and social services center was established to recognizing that the current programs disproportionally distribute services and fails to focus on those who are of low income, marginalized, uninsured and/or home.
Asma Inge-Hanif, despite an impoverished background, was the first in her family to attend college, graduated from Howard University College of Nursing and in 1987 established Al-Nisaa Health and Social Services Center in order to provide health services for the underserved and uninsured women and children.
Background: Asma Inge-Hanif original incentive was as a response to her maternal grandmother, whom actually worked as a domestic for a physician but lacking healthcare died from a preventable condition. She credits her continued inspiration and motivation to help others to her father as his sacrifice on behalf of everyone provided the path toward civil rights and social justice for all immigrating to this country. Asma Hanif is a champion for positive social change through advocacy information and service. In 2018 she was awarded the: National Safe Place Network's Culture of Respect Award - given to: “those who champion the cause of justice and equality."

There were only two stages of grief for one runner when the Milwaukee Running Group shut down daily group workouts last month. For Olivia Spring first came “sadness” then came “let’s do something about it.” Olivia's idea to get herself out of the funk was to go to a map and plotted a street run that would draw one out of her favorite things -- a cat.
