Newport Beach, California
On September 17, 2016, Telemed Foundation held our first annual fundraising gala, raising over $100,000 for the Magdi Yacoub Heart Foundation.
Founded and directed by Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub, the Magdi Yacoub Heart Foundation is a world-renowned, non-profit, non-governmental organization offering state-of-the-art medical services to patients in need, especially children and the underprivileged, in Egypt and throughout the region for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The Magdi Yacoub Heart Foundation provides all services free of charge, regardless of medical complexity, duration of treatment, and patient creed, color, gender, or economic status. Telemed Foundation was honored to present Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub with our Man of the Year Award, and it was our privilege to have the opportunity to introduce this great man to Southern California's generous Egyptian-American community.
