Ayyub Hanif

Ayyub Hanif is an accomplished healthcare leader, social entrepreneur, and public speaker who believes that "service is a core tenant of being human and that the social good truly is a responsibility upon all of us." As CEO of Healthy Solutions/Inge Benevolent Ministries, he established a Health and Social Services Center to care for the underserved and uninsured women and children, providing shelter to homeless women and children victims of domestic violence. Ayyub Hanif received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master's degree in Health Services Leadership and Management from the University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON). Subsequently, he received his Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Baltimore and is currently pursuing his Doctorate in Nursing Practice. Hanif possesses over ten years of experience in the multimedia and image industry. He has an extensive background in healthcare, business, and domestic violence advocacy, specializing in leveraging multimedia production to document and promote organizational goals and objectives, as well as the need for social justice relative to associated disparities of minorities. Healthy Solutions was founded to serve the needs of all faiths. As CEO, he formulates health policies and directs daily organizational operations. Realizing many immigrants are afraid of consequences associated with accessing services, he targets areas where those who have immigrated to this country wouldn't be singled out but included as part of the norm, such as within the inner city public schools. A noteworthy annual event, they locate and serve hot bowls of chili, distribute cold weather clothing and toiletries and, through his student volunteers, provide health screenings to those homeless on the streets.

During the early days of the pandemic, Hanif utilized his position at Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing to access the most up-to-date research on COVID-19 to purchase and distribute thousands of quality cloth (with filter), PM2.5 Surgical and N95 face masks he could find that needed them (at the time individuals were selling numerous fake products at excessive prices to the needy). Recognizing the severe health implications of misinformation and the lack of administrative infrastructure to withstand a health emergency of this magnitude, he reallocated a large portion of our budget towards direct community and social support. According to him, the initiative would require him to "rapidly retool, repurpose, and reallocate our human resources because we aren't prepared to respond to a domestic emergency of this magnitude for this long." Being a nurse, he purchased a MERV13 air purifier for the front lobby of his condo and gave masks to the frontline staff and guests for free. As a nurse, although he was in full frontline attire (scrubs) and a current resident, he is currently being sued by his condo for "sticking his neck out to save the lives of others, for what they instead determined was him causing a public nuisance in their "upscale" lobby.
