Professor Mok had been widely recognized by the medical field, he was also named as one of the “Giant of Cancer Care” by OncLive in 2022, a leading multimedia cancer resource platform.
“Professor Mok is the hall of fame in the medical world. His decision to join Bowtie as Health Advisor instead of other long-established insurers means a lot to our team. Moreover, it is a testament to our commitment in becoming a category-defining health insurer.” said Fred Ngan, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Bowtie.
“The overall incidence of cancer in Hong Kong has been increasing, although medical advancement is making personalised early cancer detection and treatment possible, at the same time, it is getting more expensive. In order to save lives, the top priority of our society should be unlocking private medical services for the general public, enabling their access to cancer treatment as well as other private healthcare.” said Dr. Jacky Lio, Chief Medical Officer of Bowtie.
“We are very pleased to learn under Professor Mok’s guidance. He has devoted his entire career to improving the survival rate of cancer patients and their quality of life, which coincides with the Preventive Care concept that Bowtie has been advocating, both sides fit in easily.” supplemented by Dr. Jacky Lio.
“As a Hong Konger, I am really glad to see a local startup company shouldering the social responsibility of Hong Kong people’s health. Witnessing the two co-founders and their team focusing on the same goal, reminded me of myself when I returned to Hong Kong from Canada for scientific research. It is obvious and apparent that guiding Bowtie is the correct decision. I have always hoped that with advanced detection, more integrative therapeutic strategy and various medical support, we can provide patients with better care.” said Professor Tony Mok.
