Speaker On The Stage With Rear View Of Audience In


Hamid Razavi left his native Iran at age 18, moving to the US to continue his education. Like many immigrants, he faced a world completely different from the one he left behind. Despite many cultural and language challenges, Hamid Razavi earned three degrees, including a PhD in political science and developed successful businesses including Hillcroft Physicians Clinic that he runs with his wife, Dr. Forough Farizani.

“My goal was always to go back to Iran and become a political leader,” he says. “But life taught me a lesson here.
