                           HON. CHERI BUSTOS

                         Tuesday, March 5, 2019

  Mrs. BUSTOS. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize Dr. Jitendra 
Shah for his retirement. Dr. Shah currently serves as the Director of 
the Pediatric Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at the Children's 
Hospital of Illinois at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.
  Dr. Jitendra Shah has had a long and distinguished career as a 
doctor, which began after he graduated from the Medical College at 
Maharaja Sayajirao University in Baroda, India in 1969. Following 
graduation, Dr. Shah completed an internship and his residency at Shree 
Sayaji General Hospital in Baroda, India, the Albert Einstein Medical 
Center and Philadelphia General Hospital in Pennsylvania. Dr. Shah did 
a fellowship in Pediatric Cardiology at St. Christopher's Hospital for 
Children in Philadelphia, and then led research at the Congenital Heart 
Disease Research & Training Center's Hekteon Institute for Medical 
Research in Chicago, Illinois. He has also served in the academic 
world, most recently as Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the 
University of Illinois College of Medicine in Peoria. Dr. Shah is a 
part of many scientific organizations and has received two teaching 
awards for his time in academia. I would like to wish Dr. Shah well as 
he begins his well-earned retirement and thank him for his many 
contributions to medical research.
  It is because of dedicated leaders such as Dr. Jitendra Shah that I 
am especially proud to serve Illinois' 17th Congressional District. 
Madam Speaker, I would like to again formally congratulate Dr. Jitendra 
Shah on his retirement and thank him for his service to the Peoria 
community.
