‘As a graduate and staff member of the Faculty of Medicine at HKU, I am extremely lucky to have been a student and later a colleague of Professor Young—not only because of the knowledge, skills, ethics, and compassion that I learned from her as a medical practitioner and researcher, but also the passion, dedication, perseverance, and wisdom that I see radiate from her as an educator, administrator, public servant, and trailblazer. As vividly illustrated in this exquisite book, Professor Young is an institution at HKU and in our city, as well as a role model for the people of Hong Kong.’


—Chung-mau Lo, Secretary for Health, Government of the Hong Kong SAR, China



‘When going through Moira’s manuscript on Rosie, I could hear the little giant talking, meticulous to the details and warm from the bottom of her heart. Rosie’s immense contributions to university administration, medical service, and public education in Hong Kong are truly inspiring. Finishing all seven chapters of heavy but enjoyable reading in one seating for me is a rare feat!’


—Lap-chee Tsui, former vice-chancellor, University of Hong Kong





‘Professor Rosie Young is our role model. In the traditionally male-dominated world of Hong Kong, she fought decades to become a top leader of the medical profession and at HKU. In her various roles, she has helped numerous needy patients, students, colleagues, and beyond. This book is an inspiring must-read for everyone in the medical community.’


—Kwok-yung Yuen, Henry Fok Professor in Infectious Diseases, University of Hong Kong
