Your KLF Team
KLF adds Healthcare Program Manager to the team
We have recently expanded our team and hired a full-time Healthcare Program Manager, Judy Li to the lead the implementation of all KLF programs in the future.
Judy began her career as a registered nurse in Canada, serving the community and in the operating theatre after receiving her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Ryerson University in Toronto. She also holds a Master of Public Health from The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Several post-graduate diplomas & appointments had her spent time at the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp, Belgium and as Community Health Officer for disaster relief in China and Nepal to name a few. In addition, Judy has experience working with charitable organizations in low- and middle- income settings around the world, where she has deployed her expertise in the areas of health promotion of maternal and child health.
KLF welcomes OT&P Healthcare as an additional medical partner
For over 20 years, OT&P Healthcare has been a highly respected provider of medical services to the expat and local communities in Hong Kong. One of OT&P’s seven clinics specialises in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and is thus well placed to assist KLF with its awareness and educational programs. Being the only clinic group in Hong Kong to achieve international accreditation and constantly staying ahead of the curve in patient care by providing tomorrow’s standards we feel confident that OT&P Healthcare will add value to our mission.
