Dr. Miriam Hadj-Moussa

Dr. Hadj-Moussa is assistant professor of urology at the University of Michigan. Her clinical interests encompass a range of urological issues as well as gender affirming surgeries. She will be speaking on the basics of transgender "bottom" surgery, which encompasses the reproductive organs, urethra, and external genitalia.

The PAA Diversity Initiative was founded in the wake of the George Floyd protests of 2020 as a small group of PAA students sought a safe space during that difficult time to discuss issues of diversity, race, equity and inclusion. Along with open-floor discussions, the officers began to host guest speakers to provide awareness, education and exposure to topics that are not often encountered in program courses or standard medical education. Speakers have presented on topics such as disability awareness, intersectionality, diversity in the funeral profession, and transgender missing persons research. This virtual event was approved through Wayne State University.
