Physicians for Peace will honor Omar Boukhriss  on Oct. 2 for his longtime support of the organization's mission, at home and abroad, as well as his humanitarian efforts in Morocco. The award ceremony takes place during the 2010 Physicians for Peace Celebrate the Nations Gala Reception in Virginia Beach, Va.
"Not only has Omar actively raised money on behalf of Physicians for Peace, but he's also played key roles on two missions to Morocco, in 2003 and again in 2010," said Brig. Gen. Ron Sconyers (USAF, Ret.), president and chief executive officer of Physicians for Peace. "Because Omar facilitated such a deep camaraderie between the team and medical professionals in Morocco, future information-sharing and training missions already are being discussed and the seeds for long-term partnering have been planted."
A History of Service For more than 10 years, Boukhriss has been a friend and supporter of Physicians for Peace. As the owner of Omar's Carriage House, Voilà and The Pagoda Restaurant in Norfolk, Boukhriss has hosted fundraisers, including "The Taste of Morocco" in March 2010, and he has underwritten costs to send educational missions to train surgeons in Morocco. In May 2010 Boukhriss joined Physicians for Peace on a mission to Fes, the third largest city in Morocco, where he acted as a translator and cultural liaison for an 18-member medical team. During that mission, surgeons performed the first off-pump heart surgery in Fes.
"The surgical Morocco mission definitely opened my eyes in terms of the impact that Physicians for Peace has in cities all over the world," Boukhriss said. "This work is something we should all be proud to promote and to embrace as part of our legacy. That is why I support and remain engaged in ensuring these medical missions continue."
Boukhriss is one of three 2010 Medical Diplomat award winners.
