GX intern awarded the Innovation and Technology Scholarship 2021

GX is proud to congratulate student intern, Sham Sze Tung Tiffany, who was awarded the Innovation and Technology Scholarship 2021, which provides recognition to outstanding undergraduates in universities in Hong Kong, as well as opportunities to widen their international and Mainland exposure, so as to nurture their passion and commitment towards science and technology. 

Tiffany is currently in her fifth year of CUHK Medicine (Global Physician-Leadership Stream). This scholarship will support Tiffany’s interest in global health through opportunities for continuous education in international humanitarian medicine, such as gaining experiential training in field-based clinical programmes, exploring the health and cultural aspects of ethnic minorities in Mainland China, as well as participating in tropical medicine and global health research at Oxford University.

During her time at GX, Tiffany published two research articles in international peer-reviewed journals on various aspects of Health-Emergency and Disaster Management, developed international-standard clinical protocols for conducting cataract surgery on board Mobile Eye Treatment Centres in resource-poor settings, and developed health promotion materials against vector-borne diseases. 

GX wishes Tiffany all the best in her endeavours.
