Adam Al-Kashi is Public Engagement Facilitator, Division of Language & Communication Science at City, University of London.
School’s Public Engagement Facilitator, and tasked with maximising ‘Person-Centredness’ across the School, in part through the newly formed Service Users and Carers Advisory Board (SUCAB). Before joining City in 2016, Adam spent four years working with people with long-term pain conditions. During this period, his father died from motor-neurone disease and his mother's dementia advanced. Through these experiences, Adam witnessed the contrast between person-centred care and the biomedical approach, which fired a passion for change within him. Adam would like to be part of a future where healthcare is underpinned by genuine human relationships and where the different health professions collaborate to address the whole person in an integrated way.
