We are pleased that Toni Preckwinkle, Cook County Board President, did the honors by presenting the awards to CIOGC’s three Top Muslim Achievers for 2015: Dr. Mahmoud Ismail Professor of Obstetrics/ Genecology and Co-Director of the Perinatal Network at the University of Chicago, Ash-har Quraishi, an award winning TV Journalist, currently with Aljazeera-America and Asif Rahman, Deputy Commissioner at the City of Chicago Building Department.

We regret that the videos we prepared to document their achievements could not be shown at the dinner as we were pressed for time. However, we are pleased to share them now with a much bigger audience. Please enjoy the work of these outstanding members of our community:
