In association with the WACD (World Association of Chinese Doctors) and other organizations, the CCMSBC (Chinese Canadian Medical Society BC), organized a fundraising event to support the fight against the novel coronavirus outbreak in China. The conference and fundraising event was held on February 8, 2020 at Lipont Place in Richmond, BC.
Representatives of the CCMSBC, WACD, other organizations, as well as BC community leaders participated in the event. The CCMSBC members included Drs. Charles Jiang (President), Xingyong Wang, Thomas Wang, Yanyan Chen. Some CCMSBC members also represented the WACD: Drs. Kwang Yang (WACD, Canadian Division Chair), Dr. Susan Kwan, Dr. Youwen Zhou, and Dr. Jianming Song. The event raised about 200,000 CAD (over 1 Million RMB) to support the battle against the novel coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China.
CCMSBC will continue to support the fight against the novel coronavirus outbreak, and will fully support WACD‘s efforts in this regard – especially their organization of two subcommittees dedicated to fighting this outbreak: the Specialty Advisory Committee and the Donation Coordination Committee. The CCMSBC board will continue to update our members with new information.
