Giv­ing Back To So­ci­ety

ZbBZ (Singapore) - - IN FOCUS -

Be­cause of Dr Karen Soh’s per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence and un­der­stand­ing of the chal­lenges that women doc­tors face, she served as the Pres­i­dent of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Women Doc­tors (Sin­ga­pore) be­tween 2014 and 2016.

Dur­ing her ten­ure, she held char­ity screen­ings with the Sin­ga­pore Film So­ci­ety to raise tens of thou­sands of dol­lars for young med­i­cal stu­dents’ mis­sion works over­seas. The fund aided young doc­tors to give ba­sic health­care in In­done­sia, Cam­bo­dia and Myan­mar, and teach the lo­cals about the im­por­tance of hy­giene in dis­ease pre­ven­tion. “We sup­port our younger col­leagues to give back to so­ci­ety at the early part of their med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion,” said Dr Soh.

She is on the fundrais­ing com­mit­tee of the Dover Park Hospice, which will be hold­ing a gala din­ner to com­mem­o­rate its 25th an­niver­sary. The Sun­flower Gala Ball — A Ster­ling Af­fair: 25 Years Of Cre­at­ing Mo­ments That Mat­ter, will be held on Aug 27 at The Ritz-Carl­ton, Mil­lenia Sin­ga­pore.
