Outreach Services

Summer Outreach Service 2017

CUHK Community Health Summer Outreach Service 2017 will be held from July to August. The activity aims to explain medication safety knowledge to community-dwelling elderly citizens and caregivers by students from Faculty of Medicine and Department of Social Work, the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), as well as increasing their awareness towards common health disorders such as dementia, depression and cardiovascular diseases.

 

In addition, we hope to enhance secondary school students’ understanding towards needs of the elderly, and train students to deliver health-related knowledge effectively.
