Health Expo 2014

2014-06-13
Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital not only provides quality healthcare service, but also cares about disease prevention. The Hospital participated in the Health & Life Expo 2014 organised by Metro Finance and Metro Finance Digital at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 13 to 15 June 2014 in order to promote public health education. The theme of our booth is ‘HKSH All-rounded Stroke Treatment’, aiming to educate the public about stroke and related health information.

The 3-day exhibition attracted many visitors to participate in the health check-up (BMI measurement, blood pressure test, cholesterol level test and stroke risk assessment) with positive response. Dr. LI Chung Ki, Patrick, Co-Director of Neurology Centre and Specialist in Neurology and Dr. LEE Ka Wing, Gavin, Director of Rheumatology Centre and Specialist in Rheumatology, held talks on the topics of "Stroke" and “Rheumatoid Arthritis” respectively, and answered the audience’s question patiently during the seminar. Dr. Lee also demonstrated the ultrasound imaging of the joints, and explained the effects of rheumatoid arthritis on the joints. Physiotherapists also demonstrated a health-enhancing exercise to encourage the public to do more stretching exercise and strengthen the body.

Co-produced by neurologist, rehabilitation physician, speech therapist, physiotherapist and occupational therapist, three videos on "Stroke", "Dementia" and "Parkinson's Disease", were displayed in the booth to raise the public awareness on these brain diseases.
