With Covid-19 serving as a “profoundly humbling reminder” of the gaps in global knowledge, we all must strive to be lifelong learners ready to adapt to constantly changing conditions, commencement speaker Feng Ge told Duke Kunshan’s Class of 2020.

Ge, the founding CEO of Jiahui Health, which operates hospitals and wellness centers across Shanghai, urged the graduating class to provide the world with the “curious and respectful minds and hearts” it deserves.

“It is most important to stay open-minded, curious and grateful. To learn is not only a capacity but also a privilege. Use it wisely and proactively,” said Ge, a Duke alumnus who is also managing partner at Trustbridge Partners, a global investment firm.

Thirty-two students across three master’s programs – medical physics, global health and environmental policy – celebrated the end of two years of rigorous study on May 8. With Covid-19 continuing to affect many countries and international travel, Duke Kunshan held an online commencement ceremony using Zoom to replace its in-person graduation activities.
