Officials of Food & Health Bureau visited CBS

Three government officials from the Food and Health Bureau, namely Deputy Secretary Shirley Kwan, Principal Assistant Secretary Chris Fung and Assistant Secretary Ricky Wu, visited CBS on 7 July and met with our Head of Department David C.S. Li, Associate Head Roxana Fung and the teaching team of Master of Speech Therapy (MST) programme. During the meeting and the guided tour of the Speech Therapy Unit (STU), the officials received a briefing on STU’s services and the professional training that we provide to aspiring speech therapists. The two parties exchanged ideas on nurturing professional speech therapists, and discussed the speech therapist manpower planning in Hong Kong and relevant policy initiatives. The officials also visited our Speech and Language Sciences Laboratories and learned more about the department’s initiatives in the teaching and research in speech therapy and language sciences.
