Dr WongDr. Chun Wong
Visionary and Design Strategist for NGOs
Palm Desert, California, USA

Dr. Wong is a visionary and design strategist for NGO with special interest in public health design. He is a primary care physician for over 15 years in a market-based healthcare system in USA, and is also thoroughly familiar with socialized medicine by growing up in Canada. Dr. Wong's entire graduate and post-graduate academia are trained in Canada, USA and England. He is a well-rounded scholar that continuously pushes the limits of education and research in the field of health, environment and society. For this reason, his professional and academic accolades include several doctorates of chiropractic medicine, natural medicine, and humanitarian service, and fellow and board certification in internal medicine, integrative medicine, pediatric, acupuncture, holistic healthcare and naturopathy including a MPH in management of health systems from the University of Liverpool.
Dr. Wong's expertise is in integrating capitalism and socialism values to create sustainable organizational structure that can withstand the 'winds' of globalization. As a naturally born entrepreneur from the age of 16 years old he has been involved and excelled in multi-tier marketing, direct bureaucratic management, and personal and group coaching for motivation, performance and wellness. His charismatic and transformational leadership are addictive and has single-handed brought a 'mom-and-pop' business to a million dollar business in less than 10 years without debt obligations and is profitable since day one. Therefore, his strengths are in alignment with ORCD in "reshaping the future of communities through best practices".
Dr. Wong's achievements as a young entrepreneur are not an accident. His perseverance and courage are not the norm because he believes that each failure bring success closer. Because of his predatory behaviors, he is ready to 'pounce' on the opportunity. His great vision and the ability to see and think 'outside and inside the box' provides the expert consultancy on market, human and economic reforms. He secures vision and emerging missions, communicating 'insights' and 'outlooks' for best practices, and engineering an innovative compass for strategic placement of organization expansion and performance elevation. For example, his blog about autism received worldwide readership of over 10,000 subscribers in less than 3 years based on his strategic placement using power of social medias.
Last, Dr. Wong has an intense desire to equalize the broad social determinants of health and this attribute is in alignment with ORCD Canada mission. He has published a study about the public health impact of using volunteer health professionals in a community center to enlighten policy makers about the potential.
