The Lecture was well-attended with excellent feedback from the audience. 

It was the 9th Grace Tien Lecture since the first lecture in 2004. The Grace Tien Visiting Professorship in Nursing Studies was established, in late 2003 with the sponsorship of the family of the late Mrs. Grace Tien. The School held the yearly named lecture to invite internationally renowned scholars to deliver a distinguished lecture in Hong Kong, to foster the exchange of experience and insights in nursing through the generous donation of the Tien family. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the contribution of the Tien family and also our supporters.
