A public talk on “Dementia prevention and brain health management” was held on 18 July 2023 in WLB205. It was co-organized by the Department of Sport, Physical Education and Health (SPEH) and the Faculty of Social Sciences of the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). A total of 380 participants registered for the event from the community and the University. We invited Prof. Daniel Lai to give a warm welcoming speech to kick start the event. The talk put together experts from clinical gerontologist, biomedical scientist, and Chinese Medicine practitioners to share the most updated and practical tips on enhancing brain health. Dr. Ada Fung, Associate Professor of SPEH, first highlighted the latest research technological development of the “Hong Kong-Vigilance and Memory Test (HK-VMT)” for public use.
