Summer Outreach Service 2016
CUHK Community Health Summer Outreach Service 2016 will be held from July to August.
The service aims to promote medication safety, raise the awareness of dementia and atrial fibrillation to elderly, rehabilitants, and ethnic minority citizens. Furthermore, CU CHAMPION will work together with Champ (secondary school students) to prepare them for the demand of aging population by introducing the elders’ health needs, and medication problems.
