In response to the novel coronavirus outbreak, the Hong Kong Baptist University ‒ Jockey Club Chinese Medicine Disease Prevention and Health Management Centre (the Centre) has enhanced its online services to provide the latest health and Chinese medicine information to the general public.

 

From now until 31 August, the general public can submit their questions on different health issues to experts from the School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) through the “Doctor’s mailbox” online platform once they have registered as a member of the Centre on its official website. The enquiry service is free of charge.

 

On the “Doctor’s mailbox” online platform, lecturers from SCM will answer questions raised by the public on various disease and health topics, covering areas such as health information, health protection tips and common Chinese medicine knowledge. The enquiry service aims to provide useful information to the public for reference purposes, but it is not equivalent to an online diagnosis, prescription or treatment direction for patients.
