Summer Outreach Service 2015

CU CHAMPION conducted a 10 weeks outreach service program : Summer Outreach 2015 this summer, which aimed at raising awareness of Medication Safety, Health Promotion, AF, and Fall Prevention among elders in Hong Kong.

Beside transferring knowledge about medication safety and health education to the elders, the outreach service also improved the students’ understanding in geriatric care and their communication skills with elders.
