Profile of a Philanthropist: Dr.Nasser Heydarian, MD, GCKSJ
payvand / Brian H. Appleton

Doctor Nasser is one of the most decorated men I know but not with war medals but rather medals for his humanitarian efforts for which he has been recognized by many nations and yet he goes unappreciated and relatively unknown in these United States of America although he has been living in San Francisco and been a citizen for over 20 years.

As I write this he is being investitured into the Order of the Knights of Rizal, which is one of the highest distinctions available in the Philippines and it is reserved for persons who make a major contribution to that nation. He will be made a 4th degree Grand Commander, which is second only to the head of the order.
