The Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health extends its heartiest congratulations to distinguished alumnus and philanthropist, Professor Saw Swee Hock, on being conferred the Honorary University Fellowship by the University of Hong Kong! This well-deserved elevation is indeed a recognition of his laudable long-standing support and numerous philanthropic contributions to many charitable causes and particularly, education. The Fellowship is a privilege reserved primarily for distinguished alumni, academics and friends who have rendered particularly meritorius services to the University and to Hong Kong.

As the Founding Professor and Head of Department of Statistics, Prof Saw has been awarded in recognition of his significant contributions to the development of statistics education and research in the University, his philanthropic gifts to the University in the form of scholarship and endowed professorship, and his consultancy service to the Hong Kong Census and Statistics Department in the collection and analysis of statistics.

It is also testament to his immense contributions to NUS and in particular, his landmark gift of 30 million to help blaze the path for our School to reach the highest levels of excellence to becoming Asia's leader in public health education, training and research in years ahead, which cannot go unnoticed.

The Fellowship conferment ceremony will be held on 9 October 2013 at the University of Hong Kong Main Campus.

We at the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health congratulate Prof Saw and we wish him many more years of excellence ahead.
