Dr. Milani has a strong interest in human rights and has launched the Center for Health and Human Rights to make health care accessible to vulnerable populations. He is designated by the Department of Homeland Security as a Civil Surgeon.

Dr. Milani received his Bachelor of Science Degree in biology from George Mason University in 1990.
