The Young Haleians' Committee is very proud to announce that Qiang Li (2010-15) is the recipient of the Endeavour Award for 2023.
The Young Haleian’s Committee is delighted announce Qiang Li (2010-15) as the recipient of the 2023 Endeavour Award. The award recognises Qiang’s outstanding accomplishments and ambitions in the field of ophthalmic research and philanthropy.
Qiang’s passion for ophthalmology was ignited shortly after leaving Hale School where he met his mentor, Prof. David Mackey, an internationally renowned ophthalmologist, whilst completing a Doctor of Medicine at UWA. Under Prof. Mackey’s mentorship, Qiang graduated from Medicine with High Distinction and published award-winning ophthalmic research in 2021, completed medical internship in 2022 and is currently a Basic Surgical Program Doctor at Royal Perth Hospital.
Qiang co-founded JFF CREATE, an ophthalmic volunteering initiative that aims to empower junior doctors to fight global blindness through Charity, Research, Exchange, Awareness, Tutelage and Empowerment. Qiang hopes to raise $10,000 to cure blind patients in Indonesia.
“The 2023 Endeavour Award will allow me to launch JFF CREATE, a new volunteering initiative that aims to empower junior doctors to fight global blindness. I co-founded JFF CREATE in partnership with the John Fawcett Foundation (JFF), a pre-existing ophthalmic charity. As John Fawcett himself is an Old Haleian, I am proud to build on the legacy of an esteemed predecessor. All this would not have been possible without the Young Haleian’s support."
We look forward to following Qiang’s progress and seeing JFF CREATE’s impact in fighting global blindness.
