The School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) has received funding totalling about HK$10 million from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust (the Trust) to enhance two SCM service programmes. These are the “Elderly Sponsorship Scheme of the Jockey Club ‘Embrace Health’ Chinese Medicine Programme” and the online “Chinese Medicine Video Enquiry Service” offered by the Hong Kong Baptist University ‒ Jockey Club Chinese Medicine Disease Prevention and Health Management Centre. It is expected that about 18,000 elderly people will benefit from these programmes.
