On May 12, Dr Chan attended the inauguration ceremony of the Yew Chung – Bernard Spodek Scholar in ECE at UIUC. The inaugural Scholar is Dr Stephanie Sanders-Smith. In her speech, Dr Chan talked about the importance to let the East and the West communicate and share the practical experiences of ECE. And she hoped that these experiences can be accumulated and used to construct research and to build theories, which help the community know the importance of this early age period of life, and also let policy makers understand the importance of this age group of children and ultimately set policies to safeguard their interests. “In the end, these will benefit society,” she said.
