AMNA KHAN, MD, FAAP – Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Champion

My name is Amna Khan and I am an outpatient pediatrician at a large, safety net public hospital in the Bay Area, California. I come from a very unique family—my mother is from El Salvador and my father is from Pakistan. My childhood was infused with Muslim and Catholic religious teachings, delicious food and many different, cultural perspectives.  I didn’t appreciate this fully as a child, but as an adult I am very thankful for my family home that was rooted in the premise that humans are much more similar than different, but those differences are what make us beautiful. This foundation has been the guiding light in my life, and the reason why I consider myself much more a humanist, enchanted by the stories and histories of people, versus a scientist absorbed primarily by how our insides function.
