Christian Contributions to Medicine in Hong Kong during WWII

Activity: Conference/talk/lecture/symposium/speech/workshop, etcEvent organized by non-HKBU units


The role of Christianity in the development of medicine in Hong Kong during WWII is an understudied topic. I will fill up parts of the gap by discussing the Christian sense of duties that some Christian leaders demonstrated through their actions and services. I will also assess the historical significance of Gordon King’s attempt to provide Hong Kong medical students chances to continue their training and education through his prior networks in China that he had established as a medical missionary.
