Class of 2021 Commencement Speech: Dr. Kai Ning Cheong '05

CIS had the honour to welcome back Doctor of Paediatrics, NAM-HKU Fellow in Global Health Leadership, and CIS Alumna from the Class of 2005, Dr. Kai Ning Cheong, as the commencement speaker for the Class of 2021.

Dr. Cheong shared her inspirational work experience, from running a paediatric hospital with Doctors Without Borders in South Sudan in the midst of a civil war, to establishing the multidisciplinary healthcare service model at the new Hong Kong Children’s Hospital. Dr. Cheong reminds our graduating class that “You need not be in a civil war or an impoverished country to create positive change. Because change and progress can happen anywhere”.
