Faculty Knowledge Exchange Award 2014
Dr Chan Lap-ki, Associate Professor of the Department of Anatomy and the Institute of Medical and Health Sciences Education, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, won the Faculty Knowledge Exchange (KE) Award this year with the project “Life and Death Education through the HKU Body Donation Programme”, which encourages body donation in the community and prompts the public to re-examine the topics of life and death. This programme has received enthusiastic response from the public, as manifested by the dramatic increase of registered and actual donors, as well as the strong support from the media and community organisations which unanimously initiated different events and activities to spread the message to the public.
The Faculty KE Award was established in 2011 with the aim to encourage Faculty members to share the fruits of their research and teaching with the wider community. This annual award accords recognition to Faculty members who have made distinguished KE achievements and promotes knowledge exchange between the Faculty and community members, businesses, industries and partner organisations for the benefit of the society.
