Join us as we celebrate 55,000 empowered children in Egypt and as we honor this year’s Leading by Example Award Honoree, Dr. Raymond Schinazi, for his work on Sovaldi, a prescription medication that treats adults with chronic hepatitis C which has saved the lives of millions of Egyptians all over Egypt.

He serves as a Senior Advisor for the International Coalition to Eliminate HBV (ICE-HBV). He is also a Fellow of the American Society of Microbiology. In September 2018, Dr. Schinazi received France’s highest civilian honor, the Légions D’honneur for saving millions of lives globally. 

Dr. Schinazi is internationally recognized as one of the most influential persons in the life science sector.

Dr. Andrew Abraham, founder of Orgain and one of the most gifted physicians in the country, will be joining us as the Honored Guest Speaker.
