The second academic term of the Health Academy for the Elderly organized by the Community Health Academy was kicked off on 9 November 2017. To further promote health knowledge in the community, a no. of new students were recruited in this term. We hoped that the elders and carers in this community can get to know more about various diseases and their social networks can be expanded. Dr. CHOI Kin was invited to be the speaker for the first lecture and he gave a presentation on renal diseases and gout, including the causes, treatments and prevention. Students were very enthusiastic in the Q&A session, one of them even brought her medicine to consult Dr. CHOI, while Dr. CHOI was happy to clear all the queries from students.
