Dr NG Chun-kong


I am deeply honoured to be elected as the President of CHEST Delegation Hong Kong and
Macau Limited and my sincere gratitude to all those entrusting me with this reputable and
challenging responsibility. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all the Past Presidents and
the Executive Committee (EXCO) members who left the Delegation, for their selfless dedications
and countless contributions. My warm welcomes to all the EXCO members, chairpersons of the
Committees and Special Interest groups (SIG). We shall work in close collaborations in the coming 2
years to promote professional developments as well as public educations in all frontiers related to
Respiratory Medicine.


Airway Disease has been selected as the theme for this year’s publicity. The Publicity
Committee will envisage in designing a series of publicity functions to raise the publics’ knowledge
and promote their awareness in the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of airway diseases. The
newly set up Airway Disease SIG will further help in promoting professional developments and
conducting researches relevant to the local scenario. Our conjoint website will be re-designed to
facilitate access by the public and to offer patient-centered and up-to-date medical and healthcare
information on respiratory diseases in Chinese. Our newsletter will also contribute issues devoted to
airway diseases to update our members on the latest advances and developments in this area. We will
set up a Young Fellow Committee to engage our young generations and to prepare those who are
committed to take up the challenges and responsibilities to serve the respiratory societies in the
future.


We treasure the long lasting and fraternal relationships with the Hong Kong Thoracic Society
and the Hong Kong Lung Foundation. In the coming 2 years, we will continue to work in
partnerships and teamwork in all aspects to promote education, research and publicity. We will keep
our close connection with the ACCP headquarter through our Global Governor to broaden our
international connections and horizons. With your participations, devotions and unfailing supports,
we look forward to achieving another successful and rewarding year for our respiratory communities.

Inaugural message from President of CHEST Delegation Hong Kong and Macau Limited

Dr David Chi-Leung Lam, 2015

The American College of Chest Physicians (Hong Kong and Macau Chapter) was incorporated in 1986. Since then, the Chapter has served as a branch for the ACCP while working seamlessly with the Hong Kong Thoracic Society and the Hong Kong Lung Foundation to foster professional and public education activities and research.

 

ACCP in US has taken on a new look last year. It is the Chapter’s turn to take on the challenge by changing its name to CHEST Delegation Hong Kong and Macau Limited. The relevant constitutional amendments are expected to be completed within this term of office.

 

Our Chapter shares the same CHEST mission as to excel in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of chest diseases through education, communication, and research. It is through education that we will continue to disseminate the best professional and public education activities in the new term. Through communication we will maintain close liaison and working relationships with ACCP in US, HKTS and HKLF. All these are much facilitated with a well-organized Newsletter and Website Subcommittee. Congratulations to Dr LAM Wai-Kei for being the new Chief Editor. For research, collaborative efforts are essential and we will work with HKLF and HKTS again in steering the Burden of Lung Diseases II project.

 

Throughout my service in the Chapter, I am deeply impressed by the long-standing brotherhood and sisterhood with HKTS and HKLF. With the formation of the new cabinet in 2015, we are looking forward to working closely with HKTS and HKLF again to get the best accomplishment in every society activity. I am most honored to have this chance to serve the respiratory communities.

 

Dr. LAM Chi-Leung David
