On the third Sunday of each month, a mosque in Redmond opens its doors as a free clinic to all, regardless of faith, race, gender and income. It’s held at the Muslim Association of Puget Sound or MAPS, and it serves anyone, whether or not they have health care – no questions asked. A small team of volunteer doctors with backgrounds in internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, cardiology, naturopathy and acupuncture attend to patients along with other medically trained help. KBCS’s Jim Cantu brings you this story.
