Sir Dr. Magdy Yacoub

Named the ‘King of Hearts’, our guest speaker tonight was Sir Dr. Magdy Yacoub, the renowned Egyptian Cardiosurgeon known for his pioneering heart transplant operations. Dr. Yacoub spoke about his pioneering operations, passion for work and his new project, the world-class cardio-surgery center located in Aswan, and sponsored by his own foundation (Magdy Yacoub Foundation) among other sponsors.

The meeting was held jointly with RC El-Shorouk in Meridien Heliopolis. The crowd of members had endless questions and words of praise as the meeting concluded late in the evening.

During our meeting with Dr. Yacoub, our newest club members Azza Shafei and Mohamed Mesbah were pinned as our newest Rotarians. Congratulations.
