“The Portrait of 100 Characters for ASEAN’s Development”, published by Thanh Nien
The book was published to support the objective of forging links and actively integrating during the year of Vietnam’s Presidency of ASEAN, to evolve into a trustworthy partner in lasting peace. It celebrates the individual contributions of various scientists, intellectuals and businesspeople in ASEAN, whose lives and careers are explained in detail, like a lively slow-motion film, rich in color. The readers will be inspired to learn all about their experiences and the practical value of their research, and broaden their own research activities and career aspirations as an integral part of the ASEAN community. 
Featured in the book is Doctor Nguyen Ngoc Minh, currently a DTU Vice-Provost, formerly Vice-Chairman of the Vietnam Association of Hematology & Blood Transfusion and Director of the Central Vietnam Center. Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Minh is a dedicated teacher, researcher and physician, known as the pioneer of the voluntary blood donation program, a vitally important community service nationwide. At 80 years of age he is still highly involved in the field of medicine and wants to continue contributing to the education of Health Science students at DTU well into the future.
Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Minh, a pioneer of hematology and blood transfusion
From page 381 to 386, a vivid portrait emerges of Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Minh’s career and contributions since he was a medical student. When he graduated, he practiced at the Bach Mai, Thai Nguyen A and the Hue Central hospitals, before mentoring PhD and Master’s degree students who went on become successful doctors of medicine. Whatever positions he held, Doctor Nguyen Ngoc Minh made outstanding contributions to DTU and his field and has become a shining example of lifelong learning and perseverance to colleagues and students alike.
With his in-depth knowledge and untiring research, he returned to Vietnam in 1979, after studying in the Netherlands and France. “He and Professor Bach Quoc Tuyen improved Hematology education in Vietnam and augmented it with sections on blood diseases and classifications of international diseases. They changed the former view of Hematology as a purely para-clinical major, integrated and tailored it to conditions in Vietnam, creating a major in Hematology & Blood Transfusion and the Center for Hematology & Blood Transfusion, established in Central Vietnam. The Center offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and enables Doctor Minh and his colleagues to participate in regional and international conferences and workshops worldwide, and resulted in the creation of the Vietnamese voluntary blood donation program, in collaboration with the Red Cross.” (p 383)
Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Minh is a leader in his field in Vietnam and was also only the second person in Vietnam to apply hematopoietic stem cell transplantation to treat diseases of the blood and hematopoietic organs.
Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Minh has published one hundred papers domestically and abroad and was mentioned in 2003 in the list of “Vietnamese Contemporary Doctors”, as an “Outstanding Executive in the Age of Integration” in 2006, and one of the “Exemplary Medical Doctors in Vietnam” in 2009. He was also recognized in well-known publications, such as “Founder in Vietnam and the World” and “Vietnamese Professors: Talent, Intelligence, and Morals”. He has also received major awards, including a Labor Medal, a Ho Chi Minh Badge and the title of National Emulation Fighter.
Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Minh still devotes much time authoring books. Many of his undergraduate and postgraduate textbooks and curricula are used nationally and cited widely in research reports and theses.
Since 2009, Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Minh has been a DTU Vice-Provost, developing courses in General Practitioner, Odontoid-Stomatology, Bachelor of Pharmacy and General Nursing, to meet the increasing demand for healthcare professionals in this region and elsewhere.
“When writing about him, people remember a teacher and scientist with a passion and enthusiasm for his profession; and his spirit of self-sacrifice in his work, which inspires friends, colleagues and young people, the ones who will follow in his footsteps and shoulder the diverse responsibilities of a People’s Doctor.” (p. 386)
