About Ming Leung

Ming Leung graduated from UBC in 1976 with a Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation. She had a long and distinguished career as a physiotherapist, with a passion in geriatrics, and falls and injury prevention. She embodied the philosophy of person-centered care and integrated it into her practice, working closely with healthcare workers from all disciplines and the client’s families.

In addition to Ming’s clinical work, she found time to support several research projects and obtained her Master of Science in 2012 from SFU. Throughout her career she also provided numerous students with placement opportunities, and was a mentor to those keen on pursuing a career in physiotherapy. To sustain Ming’s passion for nurturing strong future leaders in physiotherapy, Ming’s family has established the Ming Leung Memorial fund to support students following in her footsteps at UBC.

  • Ming recognized the value of physical activity in reducing risk of falls and improving quality of life especially for those who were challenged with limited mobility. It would be a great honour to Ming that students recognize and carry on her passion for making things better for everyone.

  • Ming Leung was a valued friend and colleague to many of us working at the Healthy Bones Clinic at Peace Arch Hospital, White Rock, British Columbia (BC). We remember her as an outstanding physiotherapist who was always curious about her patients and eager to work collaboratively with the physicians, other allied health professionals and management staff. She had many talents that we benefitted from, including her beautiful and delicious baked goods that mysteriously appeared just when we needed a little “pick-up” of energy in the day. Ming was also a talented researcher who helped bring the first Fracture Liaison Service program to BC to support patients after osteoporosis fractures. Her smile, her enthusiasm and her friendship will be greatly missed.

  • One of the best therapist that I have had the privilege to work with and a blessing that we became friends. A person that I have utmost respect and admiration . I will truly miss her, her emails, her yearly Christmas updates and all the gatherings we’ve shared. She’s given so much of herself unselfishly to others in everything she did. She always supported me at work and even asks her children to volunteer and help me out with my programs. That thoughtfulness and support has touched me and her children are the same. She truly lived her own teachings. Gone but will never been forgotten. We have gained another Angel, another star that will live on in our hearts. Thank you, thank you so much Ming for truly being an example to so many .

  • I worked with Ming first at New Vista Care Home ((around 2002-2008)when she was hired to develop the strength training program. I am a dietitian so was part of the multi-disciplinary team during the years that New Vista was associated with the Eden Alternative principles. I loved how caring and professional Ming was and we all celebrated the positive effect that the strength training program had on the lives of our elders. Ming and I had children of similar ages so we often shared stories of their school activities and adventures/mishaps. We also shared a love of travel and good food. Since that time, we have kept in touch and also both ended up working at Augustine House so I was pleased to see Ming and enjoy her company. I just heard of her passing last week when I was visiting a friend who lives in New Vista Care Home. I am so very sorry for her loving family who she cared for so much and was so proud of. I am grateful that I knew and worked with Ming. She was a wonderful person and a leader in her profession. She inspired me and I was grateful to call her a friend.
