Phone Reassurance for Elderly Project (PREP)

About the project

We will provide health assistance to 65 - 80 years old elders via one-to-one telephone contact,  in the hope of relieving their anxiety and unease caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. ​ Our student helpers will also clarify the health misinformation circulating among the community during the phone call.

The project is funded by Knowledge Transfer Project Fund (KPF) of SoCUBE from the CUHK.
