I just heard from Iraj Moslehi, this morning. He is an Iranian based anaplastologist and member of the Association of Lifecasters International. Iraj has done some amazing work in Iran creating facial prosthetics for Iranian war victims. For all of his good works, most of which were done on a voluntary basis, Iraj was honored in May by the International Anaplastology Association (IAA) where he is also a member.
The award reads:
April 16, 2013
Dear Iraj Moslehi,
On behalf of the IAA Board of Directors, I am proud and honored to inform you that you were nominated and chosen to be awarded the
2013 Humanitarian Award
This very special award is not given out every year by the association. In fact, this award has only been awarded twice in the past. The IAA Humanitarian award is given in recognition of volunteer services which benefit patients. Your dedication and devotion to help people in need in Iranhas not gone unnoticed by your colleagues around the world. You are an inspiration for the profession.
Jan De Cubber,
President IAA 2012-2013
We all extend a warm hand of congratulations to you, Iraj.
