(CUAF Day)

About

The prevalence of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) grows with the ageing population. According to a global research, one in every five people aged 65 years or above will develop AF.

 

Based on the screening result of CU CHAMPION’s summer outreach in the past 2 years, it showed that around 7% of the elderly suffering from AF are unaware of their condition and have little knowledge about the disease.  

 

As a result,  CU CHAMPION co-hosted CU Atrial Fibrillation Day (CU AF Day) on May 23 and 30, to provide basic electrocardiogram (ECG) scanning and raise the awareness towards AF among the general public. 

Date: 23 & 30 May, 2015 (Sat)

Venue: YIA LT 1, CUHK

Time: 10:00am - 5:00pm

Participants: Local Hong Kong Citizens
