Professor Bian Zhaoxiang, Associate Vice-President and Director of the Clinical Division, School of Chinese Medicine (SCM), who is also a board director of the Foundation said that SCM provides quality Chinese medicine services to prevent and treat a number of diseases and at the same time conducts drug discovery and clinical research in the field of Chinese medicine to further improve such treatment.
Professor Li Min, Director of the Teaching and Research Division, SCM, also a board director of the Foundation introduced the advantages of Chinese medicine in treating common aging-associated diseases such as cancer, cardio-cerebrovascular diseases and neurodegenerative diseases.
The Foundation called on underprivileged older adults to apply for the “Privilege Scheme of Chinese Medicine Service for Elderly” so that they can receive subsidised treatment at HKBU’s designated Chinese medicine clinics. The Foundation hopes that more people would donate to the Scheme to benefit more people in the community.
In addition, the Foundation will provide free Chinese medicine consultations on 19 and 22 September to help older adults with chronic diseases and financial difficulties. For details, please visit: http://scm.hkbu.edu.hk/lions2016.
