Vish Viswanath speaking on stage next to Laura Kubzansky and Ronnie Chan at Pathways to Happiness event in Hong Kong

In December 2018, Center Co-directors Laura Kubzansky and Vish Viswanath participated in the Asia Society Luncheon in Hong Kong. Approximately 400 people attended the event, “Pathways to Happiness: A New Approach to Positive Health and Longevity.” The discussion was moderated by Ronnie Chan, chairman of Hang Lung Group Ltd. and its subsidiary Hang Lung Properties Ltd. Professors Kubzansky and Viswanath discussed questions related to the linkages between mental health well-being and physical health outcomes, looking specifically at how findings in this field can help inform interventions and public policy related to longevity. The event was co-sponsored by the Lee Kum Kee Family Foundation, whose generous donation established the Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness in 2016.
