Speech Therapist Kathy Lee’s Key to Communication Resonates with Communities
In this issue of Cubic Zine, Prof Kathy Lee, Associate Professor & Chief, Division of Speech Therapy, Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, CUHK shares with us the key to communication and secrets “beyond words” in her 30-plus years in speech therapy.
On 1 August 2007, The Chinese University of Hong Kong formally constituted an independent Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery under the Faculty of Medicine. This further strengthens its current leading position as a provider of medical and surgical treatment of the ear, nose, throat (ENT) and head and neck surgery, as well as clinical aspects of communicative disorders and training and research opportunities relevant to all these concerns. The evolution into an independent academic department builds on the very significant achievements since 1985 of the dedicated clinicians, teachers and researchers who have served the Division of Otorhinolaryngology within the University's Department of Surgery. This transition places us firmly in line with the international and Mainland China classification of ENT as an independent medical specialty and an established academic discipline.
