Many renowned physicians and businessmen from the Flint community embraced this event with their presence and helped generously to raise funds for Dr. Tajâ€™s congressional campaign for District 11.
Dr. Shahid Tahir, who formally introduced Dr. Taj, also emphasized the importance of engaging in the social political arena.
