The day Dr. Damaj shared his perspective on Richmond’s international flavor.

“I think that the Richmond Region has made tremendous progress with diversity in the last 20 years or so.”

That’s M. Imad Damaj, Ph.D., professor of pharmacology and toxicology, weighing in on Richmond’s international community in the 2010 edition of the Richmond Region’s Official Visitors Guide. A native of Beirut, Lebanon, Damaj is president of the non-profit Virginia Muslim Coalition for Public Affairs that promotes understanding of the Islamic faith.

The Visitors Guide is published by the Richmond Metropolitan Convention & Visitors Bureau. With a circulation of 250,000, the guide is distributed via hotels and welcome centers around the state as well as to callers who request a copy.

The article is also available on page 14 of the electronic Visitors Guide, and more information on the Richmond Region is available at www.visitrichmondva.com.
