From the Director’s Desk
                           Compassionate Care Network was established five years
                           ago to provide health care services for the uninsured in
                           the Chicagoland area. CCN’s mission remains promot-
                           ing health awareness and providing access for affordable
                           health care to the uninsured. At present there are over
                           120 providers in the network serving over 2,000 mem-
                           bers who are enrolled in the program. Weekly screenings
                           for diabetes, hypertension, vision and dental health along
                           with health education are offered through neighborhood
                           mosques, churches and community centers. Several stu-
                           dents from area colleges and medical schools help out
                           with this effort as well.
                           In order for CCN to grow and expand its capacity to pro-
vide more services, it needs greater financial resources and staff support. Although
we are indebted to our grantors, Chicago Community Trust & Michael Reese Health
Care Foundation, for their financial support, we need to build our own financial
resources to sustain our work. CCN needs to reach many more of the underserved
in the South Asian, Hispanic, Arabic and Afro American communities. Even after
health care reform is enacted, some 24 million Americans are estimated to remain
uninsured. The need for promoting health awareness and providing affordable access
to many in our neighborhoods will remain.
We thank all our dedicated volunteers who have joined us through the years for their
time and their service. We would not be able to do what we do without their help. We
also wish to thank all our advertisers whose participation has enabled us to publish
this handbook which we believe is a great resource for both patients and caregivers..
Lastly we thank all our providers who constitute the many sites of strength and sup-
port in our network, whose caring and compassion brings tremendous comfort and
healing into the lives of our fellow citizens.
We hope you will continue to support CCN as it is through your generous support
and encouragement alone that it can pursue its mission.


Sincerely,


Azher Quader, MD.
Executive Director

The CCN Story
Compassionate Care Network (CCN) was started in January 2004 to promote health
awareness and to provide access to affordable healthcare for the uninsured. CCN was
founded by Chicago doctors Azher Quader, M. Gafoor & Ayesha Sultana, practic-
ing physicians and community activists. For three years, they provided free monthly
health screenings at the Muslim Community Center, located in Chicago, guided by
the principle that health is a gift from God that needs to be preserved and that access
to affordable health care is a basic human right.
Screenings were conducted for conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, heart
risk assessment, dental health, diabetes, cataract, glaucoma and prostate cancer. Ap-
proximately 30-40 people were screened each month. Along with this, free health
information lectures were also conducted for the public. As physicians identified con-
ditions and illnesses through the screenings, they quickly realized that a majority of
those screened had no health insurance or physician to see for follow up care. While
federally qualified clinics were one solution, the demand for services was so great that
patients reported waits of six or more weeks to get an appointment. Therefore the
physicians took it upon themselves to develop an additional solution. The result was
the creation of CCN, a network of 12 physicians initially with one lab. Over time this
has grown to over 100 providers (primary care and specialists), 6 medical labs, and
13 imaging centers, which support the notion of “compassionate care” and voluntarily
offer services to the uninsured at discounted rates. Specialists are in the fields of Al-
lergy, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Gynecology,
Ophthalmology, Psychiatry, Pulmonology, Rehab Medicine and Urology. Addition-
ally providers in Dentistry, Optometry Chiropractic care; Physical Therapy and
Podiatry are part of the growing network.
CCN volunteers include medical students, undergrads, high school students and
community workers who shoulder different responsibilities from doing blood tests
to helping with registration, interpretation and CCN enrollment. CCN’s free health
screenings are held weekly and spread out at various community locations including
mosques, churches and community centers.
      The key components of CCN are to provide:
(1) free health education,
(2) free health screenings,
(3) access to affordable physician services,
(4)access to affordable lab and imaging services,
(5) access to affordable prescription drugs through generics $4/month programs
Patients are charged a flat fee of $25.00 for primary care office visits, $35.00 for
specialist consultations and may choose their physician based on language and loca-



                      Compassionate Care Network 2010 Handbook

tion preference. There is a small enrollment fee of $10.00/month for individuals and
$15.00/ month for families which is waived for hardship cases. Periodic open enroll-
ments are offered when people can join for free for periods of 4-12 months. Enroll-
ment is open to everyone who has no health insurance and has annual income of less
than 400% of poverty guideline. There are no restrictions for pre existing conditions
or undocumented status. An ID card is issued at the time of enrollment to access the
discounted services.

                                www.imancentral.org
       IMAN’s clinic began in 2004 through the vision of a group of physi-
       cians who sought to address the glaring lack of healthcare in the com-
       munity. Initially, the clinic borrowed space from a local physician’s of-
       fice to provide free treatment on alternate Sundays. In 2007, through
       the help of community partners, the clinic was able to secure its own
       facility and hire a full-time clinic administrator. The clinic expanded
       its service to two days/week and has expanded its practice to over
       twelve hundred patients. The clinic continues to uphold its mission
       of providing high-quality, comprehensive, accessible, and culturally
       competent healthcare to its diverse patient population.
       Prominent Staff physicians of the clinic include: Drs. Ahsan Arozul-
       lah, Nafisa Arozullah, Jihad Shoshara, Sofia Shakir, Sherene Fakhran,
       Altaf Kaiseruddin, Naveed Mallick, Omar Hussain. Clinic Adminis-
       trator is Dr.Adiba Khan.

throughout the year in conjunction with the screenings. Topics covered were:
•   Coronary Artery Disease
•   Diabetes
•   Hypertension
•   Mens Health Issues (to include Prostate Cancer)
•   Womens Health Issues (to include Breast Cancer and Osteoporosis)

• A Health Talk segment of 15 minutes each Saturday was added to the radio pro-
  gram of IAVCC courtesy of program host Yousif Marei on AM 1240.


                                      CCN Data
Over 641 people got screened in 2009. 74% of these were uninsured. At each of
these screenings approximately 20 people were screened usually for obesity, dia-
betes, hypertension and dental health. At various times additional screenings were
added for heart risk (thru lipid profiles, EKGs), stroke risk (thru carotid ultrasounds),
visual defects, eye exams (through vision checks and retina exams), and BMIs were
determined using height and weight charts, blood sugars were thru finger sticks, and
blood pressures were recorded thru manual arm cuff technique using aneroid sphyg-
momanometers.
People screened were among various ethnic communities including South Asians,
Arabs, Africans, Latinos and Caucasians. Whenever individuals were identified with
health risks they were counseled to seek follow-up care with their primary care pro-
viders (PCPs). When such connections were not present they were offered thru CCN
enrollment and referral to CCN physicians. All individuals with abnormal screens
were counseled on issues of lifestyle modification.
58% of the individuals screened were found to be overweight, with a BMI of over 24.
28% of these were recognized as obese with a BMI of over 29. Additionally, 71 indi-
viduals were identified with elevated blood sugars (fasting level of over 125 or random
level of over 150). Of the 631 individuals who had their pressures checked,256 (40%)
were noted to be pre hypertensive, (with systolic levels from 120-139 and diastolic lev-
els from 71-89). There were 223 individuals (35%) with elevated blood pressures (of
over 139 systolic or over 89 diastolic). Of the 123 individuals undergoing lipid screens
67% had one or more of the parameters abnormal. Roughly 30 percent of the people

                                                                                       11
screened were found to have periodontal disease requiring either superficial or deep
cleaning and improved dental hygiene.
While the data needs to be further scrutinized and fine-tuned, there is little doubt
that the need for identifying people at health risk from obesity, diabetes, hypertension,
dyslipidemia and periodontal disease is great among the uninsured. Although major-
ity of the people screened were uninsured, a significant number screened were insured
(26%), indicating the need for preventative care to be promoted in both groups.
                                    CCN Enrollment
At the end of 2009 there were over 2000 people enrolled in CCN giving them access
to affordable health care. Hopefully CCN is making a difference in their lives, both
physical, financial and emotional. CCN enrollment is kept open and free during the
month of Ramadan, the week of Christmas and during Health Fairs and Conven-
tions. At these times a 6-12 months of free enrolment is offered. At other times a fee
of $10 monthly per individual and $15 monthly per family is requested from those
that can pay. For people with limited financial resources the fee is waived.
                                     CCN Providers
CCN has at present over 120 physicians and health care providers in the network.
These include both primary care MDs, specialists, dentists, optometrists, chiroprac-
tors, podiatrists and psychologists. To join the network providers agree to accept a
discounted fee (no more than $25 per patient visit for primary care visits and $35 per
visit for specialist consultations in 2009). In addition to physician providers, there are
13 imaging centers and 6 labs that also provide discounted services to CCN enroll-
ees. Our Health Screening Team includes physicians, dentists optometrists, nurses
plus medical students from area colleges and translators. For prescription fill patients
were recommended to use whenever possible, the $4 per month generic prescription
program available at their neighborhood Walmart, Kmart and Target pharmacies.
                                CCN Provider Meetings
Quarterly Provider Meetings were held through the year supported by various phar-
maceuticals and local health care organizations. These meetings gave the providers an
opportunity to network, update their medical information and learn about the pro-
gram. Meetings were spread between two locations: one in Skokie for North Chicago
providers and the other in Downers Grove for the West Chicago doctors.
                              CCN Newsletter & Website
A quarterly newsletter was published with information on the schedule of free health
screenings and health talks. Articles of medical interest for the general public along
with contact information for some network providers was included in these newslet-
ters. An active web site was maintained at www.ccnchicago.com

With over half a million uninsured in the Chicagoland area the task of providing ac-
cess to affordable health care is indeed daunting and clearly has no easy answers.
We plan to increase our capacity and commitment by expanding our screening sites.
Health care reform promises to make much needed improvements in the areas of
access and affordibility. Even with those changes taking place the need to promote
health awareness through health education and health screenings will remain a prior-
ity if our fellow citizens are to enjoy healthier living. We will continue to do all we can
to make that goal a reality for as many people as we can reach.

Why Screen?
                                    Why BP Screening?
In the United States nearly 45 million people suffer from high blood pressure. That is nearly 1
in 4 adults. Only half of them are treated due to lack of proper diagnosis.Among those that
are receiving treatment it is estimated that 1/3rd are not adequately controlled. High blood
pressure is a leading cause of stroke, heart attack and kidney failure. Usually there are no
symptoms. Nearly 50 percent of those who have it are women. Early detection and appropriate
treatment can prevent complications.
Risk Factors
1. Obesity: People with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more are more likely to
   develop high BP.
2. Salt Intake: Eating too much salt increases your risk.
3. Smoking: Smoking a cigarette can raise your BP by 5 – 10 mm Hg for about 30
   minutes.
4. Lack of Exercise: An inactive life style leads to obesity and high BP.
5. Stress: A high level of anxiety and stress, which is not properly dealt with, can lead
   to high BP.
6. Alcohol: Heavy and regular use of alcohol can increase BP.
7. Race: 1 out of 3 African-Americans suffers from high BP.
8. Heredity: If your parents or other close blood relatives have it, you are more likely
   to develop it.
9. Age: The older you get the greater your chances of developing high BP.
                               Why Heart Risk Evaluation?
Coronary artery disease is a major cause of disability and death in America. As many as 1.2
million Americans have a heart attack each year and nearly half a million die from it. Iden-
tifying risk factors and changing life styles can prevent the onset of coronary artery disease.
Risk Factors
1.   Increasing age
2.   Family history *
3.   Gender and race
4.   Total cholesterol above 200
5.   HDL cholesterol level below 35
6.   LDL cholesterol level above 130
7.   Smoking
8.   Blood pressure not adequately controlled



                       Compassionate Care Network 2010 Handbook
14
9. Diabetes not adequately controlled
10. Body Mass Index (BMI) over 25
11. Lack of exercise
                                Why Obesity Screening (BMI)?
Obesity is the accumulation of excess body fat defined as weighing 20% (25% for women) or
more over the recommended body weight for one’s height. Obesity is determined by the body
mass index (BMI). Overweight is defined as a BMI of 25 to 29.9; obesity as a BMI of 30 to
39.9; and morbid obesity as a BMI of 40 or more.
Obesity is quite common and has been described by some researchers as an epidemic in the
United States. Between 1980 and 1999, the estimated number of overweight people in the
United States rose from 47% to 61%, and the number of obese people rose from 15% to 26%.
Childhood obesity is also an increasing problem.
Risk factors
1. consuming more calories than the body uses, eating a high-fat diet, and consum-
   ing alcohol
2. family history of obesity
3. inactivity & sedentary lifestyle
4. Prescription drugs
5. hormonal changes and psychological factors
Complications of childhood obesity include high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. In addi-
tion, childhood obesity can lead to the development of extra fat cells, which can contribute to
obesity persisting in adulthood.
Complications of chronic adult obesity include osteoarthritis, difficulty breathing, heart fail-
ure, certain cancers, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and premature death.
                                   Why Stroke Screening?
Every 45 seconds, someone in the United States has a stroke.
If blood flow is stopped for longer than a few seconds, the brain cannot get blood and oxygen.
Brain cells can die, causing permanent damage.
Risk Factors
1.   High blood pressure
2.   age
3.   family history of stroke
4.   smoking
5.   diabetes,
6.   high cholesterol
7.   heart disease



                         Compassionate Care Network 2010 Handbook
                                                                                              15
Different tests are performed to determine the type, location, and cause of a stroke. Carotid
Ultrasound identifies individuals at risk of stroke from blockages in their neck arteries.
                                  Why Diabetes Screening?
More than 20 million people in the US are currently diagnosed with diabetes. An estimated
6 million – twice the city of Chicago’s population - remain undiagnosed. Many of us are
directly affected by diabetes, because our family members are diabetic. Normally the sugar
level should be less than 100 mg/dL. If the level is between 100-124 mg/dL, the person is
considered at risk for developing diabetes within a few years. If the level is above 125 mg/dL,
diabetes is diagnosed.
Risk Factors:
1.   Persons over 45
2.   high blood pressure
3.   high cholesterol,
4.   obesity
5.   sedentary lifestyles
6.   family history of diabetes
Diabetes can lead to significant complications such as heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney
failure and sometimes amputation of limbs. Early detection and adequate treatment including
diet and exercise, can prevent complications.
                               Why Breast Cancer Screening?
 Breast cancer claims over 1,700 lives in Illinois each year. In women over the age of 20, breast
cancer is the most commonly diagnosed type of cancer. Early detection is the key to survival.
When diagnosed early, the five-year survival rate is 96%.
The Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program offers free mammograms, breast exams, pel-
vic exams and Pap tests. Uninsured women over the age of 40 can receive free mammograms
and breast exams. Call the Illinois Department of Public Health’s Women’s Health-Line at
1-888-522-1282 for details.
                              Why Prostate Cancer Screening?
Over 200,000 Americans are diagnosed with prostate cancer annually. Of these nearly 24,000
die from the disease. It is the most common malignancy in men and the second leading cause
of cancer death in men. The disease is mostly asymptomatic. Early detection can lead to cura-
tive treatment. A simple blood test (PSA) along with digital rectal exam (DRE) is recom-
mended for all males who are 50 and older. If there is a family history of prostate cancer, then
screening is recommended to start at 40. Testing should be once every year.

Setting up a Health Care Network
Here are some guidelines for setting up a CCN prototype program.
The program consists of 2 components:
1. Promoting Health awareness through free health education, and free health
   screenings
2. Providing access to affordable health care services in the ambulatory setting.
   Through physician and allied health services, lab services, imaging services &
   pharmacy services
                              Promoting Health Awareness
We suggest that free health education and health screenings be placed in first. We
recommend you initiate these within established Islamic Centers, mosques or com-
munity centers where the physical infrastructure exists to provide these services, and
where people are already coming for religious programs or other community activities
and would appreciate having such a service available to them
We also recommend that one or two physicians in the community be involved at this
level who would be willing to help with counseling the people with abnormal screen-
ing results.
It is helpful to start with simple screenings like blood pressure and BMI (Body Mass In-
dex for obesity). These don’t incur any costs to do and are significant health risk issues.
We recommend that all participants coming to the screenings be encouraged to com-
plete a food diary for a week and bring it to you so you can see what exactly they are
consuming. This way you can make specific suggestions on improving their eating
habits. If you are lucky to have a dietician interested to work with you, it will be great.
Otherwise you will need to read up on diet and nutrition yourself and be prepared to
talk with your participants and answer questions. www.webmd is a good resource .
Also be prepared and willing to counsel them on the need for exercise and the spe-
cifics of muscle stretching, weight training and aerobic exercising. If a chiropacter
can be enlisted, this counseling will be easily facilitated. For BP we like to use the
stethoscope and analog dial equipment rather than the digital ones. BMI charts are
easily available with most primary care physicians.
At a later stage you can add diabetes screening. Here you will need a glucometer and
test strips. There are several brands out there. Choose one and stay with it. These tests
will cost around $1.00 per test. You can request the Islamic Center to foot this bill
and keep the service free for the participants. Make sure you request the participants
to come fasting for atleast 8 hours to get a good reading.Using the glucometers is
pretty simple if you follow the instructions that come along with them. Again having
a doctor around for counseling will be helpful. The person who is doing the testing
should not be the one counseling, because you will slow down the process by doing
that. Counseling does take a good bit of time.

When you get these under the belt then try the Lipid Profile (for Heart Risk), but only
with a physician around. If a phlebotomist or lab technician is available in the com-
munity request their help for the blood draw. Do not attempt to do this on your own
if you are not a physician. Typically these tests will cost you $5.00-$10.00 per person.
The lab will provide all the information for collection of samples and will also provide
the supplies needed for free ( vacutainers, needles, tourniquets, alcohol swabs, band
aides etc.) They will also provide for the pickup of the samples. We recommend
talking to a few labs to see if they can quote you their best prices for the Lipid Panel
(Cholesterol, HDL,LDL, Triglycerides). Again ask the Center to pay for it. This way
the Center can set up a budget for Health Services.
We recommend you do the screenings monthly to include BP, BMI, Diabetes, dental
health, vision check with glaucoma and cataract screenings. Lipid panels and PSA
(for prostate cancer) can be offered once a year. Simultaneously with the screenings an
educational program should be instituted with the help of either physicians or public
health professionals. Choose some common health topics like Diabetes, Hyperten-
sion, Coronary Artery Disease, Obesity, Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Mental
Health, Drug Abuse, Allergy & Asthma, Immunizations etc.
                        Providing Access to Health Care Services
We think when you get this program established for a year or two, then you will be
ready to launch the physician network part of the program. This stage would defi-
nitely need greater physician involvement and participation. We do not favor the
Free Standing Clinic model as it requires substantial financial obligations, significant
human resources to run it plus the need to overcome professional liability issues as
well. With the network model the physicians remain in their offices and see the pa-
tients as they see the rest of their regular patients. All that they will be asked to do
is to see a limited number of patients from the network. The physicians decide from
time to time how many patients they can take care of from the network. At present
we are requesting network physicians to accept a flat fee of $25.00 per patient visit.
Patients pay this at the time of their visit so there is no billing involved by the physi-
cian office. You may choose to set up a different fee structure, one that your network
providers agree to.
Patients are enrolled in the program on payment of a small fee. An ID card is is-
sued for each patient enrolled which guarantees the benefits. We have kept the
enrollment fee at $10.00 per month for individuals and $15.00 per month for families
The flat fee covers for all non urgent office visits, dental hygiene and vision checks.
Pregnancy care is not included. If patients require hospitalization they are recom-
mended to connect with the county hospital system. Alternatively they are counseled
to purchase basic hospitalization through Blue Cross (Basic Blue Plan) with a high
deductible to make the premiums affordable. Premiums are based on age and on the
absence of any pre existing conditions. For patients less than 50 years in age we feel
the premiums are affordable and give them the freedom to go to any hospital for
emergency or elective care. Continued on next page...


                       Compassionate Care Network 2010 Handbook
                                                                                        19
You should approach Labs and Imaging Centers to join the network if they are willing
to discount their fees. Most labs and imaging centers are willing to do this for cash
paying patients who lack insurance. Again we recommend requesting quotes from
several providers and choosing the ones that are giving the best rates. If physicians
draw the bloods in their offices then the labs who usually provide courier services will
have them picked up without any inconvenience to patient or physician. If a physician
office does not do the blood draw then patients could go to the lab to have the blood
collected there. (We can provide the fees we have been able to receive from our labs
and imaging centers to help you in your negotiations with your area providers).
The final component of the program is the access to affordable prescription drugs.
We recommend the use of pharmacies at Walmart, K mart and Target stores where
their $4 per month generic prescription program if available in your area will be a
great help. For prescriptions where generic equivalents are not available you may look
into the programs set up by certain pharmaceutical companies to assist low income
patients access brand name medications.
                                          Legal considerations
We recommend setting up a corporate entity initially for doing all this work, which
should be converted to a tax exempt organization later. This would limit liability to
the centers where screenings are done and allow donors to make tax favored dona-
tions. Once a health service network is formed where discounted services are being
provided, legal counsel with a competent health care attorney should be obtained to
determine the application of state laws. Some states mandate such networks to be
registered as Preferred Provider Program Administrators under the State’s Depart-
ment of Insurance. This is an additional legal step and a health care attorney is the
right person to guide you through it.

The Amana Mutual Funds:
“They get me.”
Where you invest your money changes
your world. Isn’t it nice to know there’s a
Sharia compliant option?
The Amana Mutual Funds follow a
value-oriented approach consistent
with Islamic principles. Generally,
these principles require that investors
avoid interest and investments in
businesses such as liquor, gambling,
pornography, and banks. The Funds
avoid bonds and other
fixed-income securities while
seeking protection against
inflation by making long-term
equity investments.




                     Amana Mutual Funds Trust
                     888/73-AMANA                          www.amanafunds.com




The Amana Funds limit the securities they purchase to those consistent
with Islamic principles which limits opportunities and may increase risk.
Current and future holdings, as with all mutual funds, are subject to
market risks.
Please request a prospectus which contains information about the
investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the Amana Funds
which you should read and consider carefully. The Amana Funds are
distributed by Saturna Brokerage Services, member FINRA/SIPC and a
wholly-owned subsidiary of Saturna Capital Corporation, investment
adviser to the Amana Funds.
