The Director’s Bio

Ali Gheith joined Project Liberty immediately following the disastrous events of 9/11, where he outreached to union workers at ground zero, addressed the special needs of vulnerable population, and trained counselors on methods of providing culturally appropriate disaster mental health services to the diverse NYC communities. He conducted the first known research on NYC Muslim mental health needs and the role of the imams into the day-to-day lives of the American-Muslim communities. He’s an expert on international affairs, Islamic and Middle Eastern studies. In early 2003, Mr. Gheith joined the NYC DOHMH as a coordinator of Population Based Resilience. Professor Gheith responded to every major crisis since 9/11. Recently, he was assigned as regional coordinator for a citywide H1N1 vaccine campaign effort to inoculate New Yorkers. He is the author or co-author of journal articles and abstracts. He is an extremely active figure in a number of professional organizations, and a tireless advocate for the most vulnerable in our communities. Professor Gheith is the recipient of the NYC distinguished Service Award for his work with community and faith leaders across New York City.
