First Gerald Choa Memorial Lecture

The establishment of the Faculty of Medicine in 1981 was a major milestone in the University's development and the late Prof. Gerald Choa, the founder and founding Dean, was the key contributor. To pay tribute to Professor Choa's immense contribution to medical development in Hong Kong, CUHK held the first 'Gerald Choa Memorial Lecture' on 11 September. The lecture was  delivered by Prof. Arthur K.C. Li, Emeritus Professor of Surgery.

The inauguration ceremony of the Gerald Choa Memorial Fund was also held on the same day, officiated by Prof. Joseph J.Y. Sung (2nd right), Vice-Chancellor of CUHK; Professor Li (3rd left); Mrs. Peggy Choa (4th right); Mrs. Helen Lee (4th left); Prof. Sir David Todd (3rd right); Prof. Richard Yu (2nd left); Prof. T.F. Fok (1st right), Pro-Vice-Chancellor of CUHK; and Prof. Francis Chan (1st left), Dean of Medicine. Over 200 participants, including leaders in business and education sectors, government officials, medical alumni and friends of the University were in attendance.  

In the lecture titled 'Professor Gerald Choa–His Legacy', Professor Li described the early days of CUHK Medical Faculty under the vision and leadership of the late Professor Choa. The Gerald Choa Memorial Fund supports various academic initiatives of the Medical Faculty, including scholarships, teaching facilities, programme development as well as the annual Gerald Choa Memorial Lecture.
