Time: 10:30 AM – 12:00 Noon
Venue: Lecture Theatre 1, Cheung Kung Hai Conference Centre,
William MW Mong Block, Faculty of Medicine Building, 21 Sassoon Road

Speaker Info:
Praised as “Asian Hero” by Time Asia Magazine, our well known and respected Professor Kwok-yung Yuen will share the story of another giant in the history of medicine in Hong Kong— the founder and the first Dean of HK College of Medicine for Chinese (the precursor of the Faculty of Medicine) Sir Patrick Manson.

Abstract of the lecture:
The Hong Kong College of Medicine for Chinese is the forerunner of the Faculty of Medicine and this University. The College was founded in 1887 by Patrick Manson who observed that many infectious tropical diseases require an animal vector transmission. This insect vector hypothesis was later confirmed in malaria and other tropical diseases, and thus laid the foundation for their control. Before leaving, he also established the Alice Memorial Hospital and Hong Kong Dairy Farm for supplying hygienic affordable milk to the needed. His humanistic quality in his pursuit for fairness, compassion, humility and excellence were demonstrated in his clinical service, medical education and scientific research.
