Dr. Maggie Kwok joined the School of Public Health in 2006 as a research assistant and soon pursued postgraduate training in the School with growing interest in life-course epidemiology. As a part of research team working on Hong Kong’s “Children of 1997” birth cohort, she has been able to appreciate the value of evidence from non-Western populations. Her doctoral thesis dissects out the short and medium term health outcomes of breastfeeding and second-hand smoking. She earned her Ph.D. degree in Public Health from the University of Hong Kong in 2010. She is on Takemi Fellowship Program in International Health at the Harvard School of Public Health in 2014-15.With the on-going “Children of 1997” birth cohort set in a socio-historical context different from more commonly studied Western populations, Dr. Kwok is currently considering the roles of intergenerational and early life exposures on adolescent health with the aim of identifying key interventions during this window for cardiovascular disease prevention.
