Young Chinese nephrologists gain funding to go to WCN 2013

HKSN CSN 2 webThere were 238 very happy young nephrologists attending the World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) in Hong Kong thanks to the generous support from the Hong Kong Society of Nephrology (HKSN) and local philanthropists.

HKSN President Samuel Fung explains: “the idea was initiated by HKSN Senior Advisor Richard Yu in collaboration with the Chair of the WCN 2013 Local Organizing Committee Philip Li. It was endorsed by HKSN senior and council members and funding was solicited from generous local donors and HKSN.”

Fung believes it was an exciting initiative and definitely worth the hard work. He would like to thank John Feehally, Richard Yu, Philip Li and Liu Zhihong for turning a dream into reality.
