Refugee, Dishwasher, Heart Doctor
After fleeing Syria as a child and living in refugee camps in Germany, I arrived in the US at 18 years old two weeks after 9/11. Ten years later, I graduated from medical school and started training at Emory University, one block away from the restaurant where I used to wash dishes.
True to the American Dream, I am a heart doctor now, serving the same community that welcomed my family as refugees, and I help recreate that dream for others. Read more about my journey.
My expertise are focused on preventive health, serving underserved communities, refugee related issues and utilizing artificial intelligence in healthcare.
Heval was named one of the refugees shaping America by Voice of America.
