Sacramento, California. April 12, 2017. The celebration to honor two UC Davis undergraduates, Don Nguyen and Abhay Sandhu, took place at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, April 14, 2017, at the Diamond Conference Center (DCC) of Delegata Corporation – 2450 Venture Oaks Way, Ste. 400, in Sacramento, California. The event hosted about 50 guests, including fellow Shifa Clinic volunteers, doctors, community leaders, and faculty members from UC Davis.

Each of the two honorees have contributed more than 100 volunteer hours to Shifa Clinic—a non-profit, student-run medical facility that serves uninsured patients free of charge. The work of Nguyen and Sandhu crossed both administrative and medical tasks, and supported the clinic’s smooth Sunday 9am-12pm operation. Nguyen has been nominated for one of UC Davis’ top awards, the University Medal; Sandhu served as the elected Vice President of the UC Davis student body of 27,000 undergraduates. "They are model citizens and volunteers, and Shifa Community Clinic has been so lucky to have them. We pride ourselves in the incredible work our volunteers do, and the exceptional individuals they become after this experience,” commented Dr. Shagufta Yasmeen, Medical Director of Shifa Clinic. “They both embody the value of having 'vision with action,' for they have been advocates for change in the underserved communities. I have no doubt that they will apply the lessons-for-life that Shifa has taught them, and that they will continue to give back to the communities that helped shape who they are as adults."

Neda Awwad, Clinic Manager at Shifa, also reflected on the guests of honor: “They have been such outstanding volunteers. Their contributions have allowed them to become excellent leaders for change, not only at Shifa, but also in the many student organizations of which they are a part. I have no doubt that they will make a positive impact wherever they go—whether in medicine or in the corporate world."

Nguyen will be matriculating into an MD-PhD program at Stanford University this fall, where he plans to specialize in Infectious Disease. Sandhu majored in Managerial Economics while working part-time in Securities Valuation at State Street Bank.
