Public Education Day - Action for Your Health Campaign

The HKMA, in conjunction with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Hong Kong Baptist Hospital, have organized an "Action for Your Health Campaign" on Sunday, 24 October 2010 in the Hospital Authority Head Office. There were health talks on the early detection of kidney disease, treating renal failure with peritoneal dialysis and haemodialysis. There were also medical check-up stations on blood pressure, blood sugar, urine protein and abdominal circumference. The latter was shown to be associated with increased chance of CKD. A group of specialist doctors also provided medical advice for the participants during the event.
