Henry & Sylvia WONG Forum in Medicine

As former students of McMaster University, Henry and Sylvia Wong believe it is one of the best schools in the world, and have provided the financial support to establish an annual forum for the advancement of research and public education in medicine. Dr. Wong, who was part of the second MD class to graduate from McMaster in 1973, said he and his wife established the forum in repayment of both the education and enjoyment they had as McMaster students. Mrs. Wong graduated in 1969 with a BA in psychology, and worked in the Health Sciences library. The couple now lives in California.

"I really enjoyed the problem-based learning method, where we used our leaders as resources, and studied on our own and with the help of fellow students in small groups," said Dr. Wong. "We wanted to set up an annual lecture that would enhance our university."
