Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I am the co-investigator of this study through which a partnership was created with local women in the neighborhood of a clinic run by a community-based organization in an underserved neighborhood in Beirut. Previously, I served as Chief Resident in the Department of Family Medicine at the American University of Beirut. During this time, I supervised family medicine residents caring for patients at the NGO where this study is based.
