Charity work[edit]

Dr. Qasabian is a grandson of Armenian refugees and a first-generation Australian. Driven by his Armenian heritage,[2] Raffi has been visiting Nork-Marash Medical Center, providing charity services to advance vascular surgical care in Armenia. The first time he visited Armenia was in 2004, when he was still a vascular surgical trainee. In 2009, establishing himself as a clinician in Sydney, Dr. Qasabian Raffi started visiting Armenia twice a year, with support from Linette Shahinian, a fellow Armenian in Sydney.
