 Somali Health Coalition Previews New Multicultural ACP Videos
 Somali Health Coalition Members
Amira Adawe and Abdiaziz Omar
Honoring Choices Minnesota was invited to share the new Somali ACP video, “Voices of Advance Care Planning” with members of the Somali Health Coalition at Saint Paul-Ramsey County Public Health on June 16, 2015.  The Coalition meets monthly to share resources, reduce Somali healthcare disparities and promote healthcare equity.  Participants discussed opportunities for showcasing the video within the metropolitan Somali community.  Key recommendations included dialogues at Somali adult day care centers, Somali cable/radio, Somali public/resident housing facilities and community nursing services.

Participants shared these perspectives on the new video:
  • “I liked the ACP perspectives from the Somali physician, community advocate and spiritual leader.  Quoting passages from the Quran was also moving and effective.
  • “I liked how both men and women community leaders were featured in the video.  The delivery of this message was extremely gentle.”
  • “I liked the pro-active advice from a family perspective on having the conversation.  Also, including the Somali scholar and reciting passages of the Quran was very important.”
  • “I wouldn’t change anything in the video – it was great!”
