In recognition of the excellent leadership and promotion by Prof. Emily Ying Yang Chan, Director of CCOUC, in the teaching, learning and research of disaster and medical humanitarian response, the University Grants Committee (UGC) of Hong Kong has awarded her the 2017 UGC Teaching Award.

Emily Chan

Emily Chan has over a decade-long experience in humanitarian intervention in the world before joining the Faculty of Medicine, CUHK in 2006.

The frontline medical humanitarian experience reinforced Prof. Chan’s belief in the importance of establishing research in Hong Kong’s tertiary education sector that can be translated into evidence-based practice in the field of public health as well as disaster and medical humanitarian response worldwide. This strengthens the city’s role in having robust academic research to ultimately reduce disaster risk.
