In Loving Memory of Professor Lam Wah Kit
Dear Members,

It is with profound sadness that we inform you of the passing of Professor Lam Wah-kit.

Professor Lam was one of the founders of the local respiratory societies in the 1980s: he was the Founding Honorary Secretary of the Hong Kong Thoracic Society in 1987, and served as the President in 1989-1991. In 1996, he was elected as the Founding Chairman of the Hong Kong Lung Foundation. Professor Lam also served as the Governor and Regent of the American College of Chest Physicians (Hong Kong and Macau Chapter) from 1997-2005.

Not only was Professor Lam our prestigious leader in Hong Kong, his influence and contribution was recognized internationally: he was the international advisor for Hong Kong in the Royal Colleges of Physicians in the United Kingdom, and he was awarded the Asian Pacific Society of Respirology (APSR) Medal in 2018.

Professor Lam will be deeply missed by all of us. We wish to extend our sincere condolences to his family.

Yours faithfully,
James Ho (Chairman of the Hong Kong Lung Foundation)
Grace Lam (President of the Hong Kong Thoracic Society)
Lam Wai-kei (President of the CHEST Delegation Hong Kong and Macau)
