University of Michigan medical school students, faculty fast for a day to better understand Muslim patients
by Tina Reed
Long before sunrise Wednesday morning, second-year University of Michigan medical student Jess Guh and some of her classmates dragged themselves to Denny's restaurant to grab a bite to eat.
They don't typically eat that early, but they wanted to get something in their stomachs before fasting for the Muslim observance of Ramadan.
"It's the only place that's open at 4 in the morning," Guh said.
She and many of her medical school friends aren't Muslim, but as future physicians, they were trying to better understand how annual Ramadan fasting would affect the lives of their Muslim patients.
