Saad is a family physician, having trained at St. Michael’s Hospital, as well the Sumac Creek health centre in Regent Park. In the light of his experience working in Toronto’s downtown East-end, he sees community organizing as the firmest expression of Islam’s promise of social justice.
Saad obtained his M.D. from Western University where he was a Schulich Scholar and his B.Sc from the University of Ottawa in Biochemistry. He has directed much of his research and work on understanding how to make progress on the social determinants of health through upstream health interventions.
Saad is passionate about civic engagement, politics, literature and chai. You can catch him at a coffee shop some weekends plotting the next great Canadian novel.
