State Rep. Abdullah Hammoud (D-District 15) is serving his first term in the Michigan House of Representatives, emerging as a strong voice for civil rights and a leading mind for health policy. As a proud son of immigrant parents, Hammoud has been unwavering in his commitment to Michigan and Dearborn for more than a decade. From volunteering at community cleanups with organizations like ACCESS to advocating to raise awareness for mental health conditions with the SAFE Substance Abuse Coalition, Hammoud has consistently given back to the community.
Hammoud earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan-Dearborn and his master’s degree in public health from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. After working for three years as a health care consultant at the Center for Healthcare Research and Transformation, he served as a volunteer with the United Nations Relief and Work Agency in Jordan.
In 2014, Hammoud was nominated and elected as the youngest board member for the Michigan League of Conservation Voters. For more than two years, he was on the forefront fighting to protect Michigan’s land, air and water by educating legislators and communities on the need for environmentally conscious policy.
