In 2016, CU CHAMPION aims to promote medication safety, raise the awareness of dementia and atrial fibrillation to elderly, rehabilitants, and ethnic minority citizens. Furthermore, CU CHAMPION will introduce the elders’ health needs, and medication problems to secondary school students (Champ) to prepare them for the demand of aging population.
