Pharmacist Chin Loh

Pharmacist Chin Loh

Chin Loh attended high school in Wellington and then studied pharmacy at Otago University. His intention was to return to Malaysia and work in his father’s Chinese herbal medicine shop, but he liked New Zealand so much he decided to stay. He bought his own pharmacy in Dunedin in 2001, and is pictured here in 2004.
