Hong Kong East Cluster Symposium on
Community Engagement V
"Family - The Key to a Healthy Community"

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to invite you all to the Fifth HKEC Symposium on Community Engagement, jointly organized by the Hong Kong East Cluster and Community Partners. The Symposium will be held on 15 May 2010 (Saturday) from 10 am to 5 pm at the Youth Square, 238 Chai Wan Road, Chai Wan, Hong Kong.

The main theme of the Symposium is "Family - The Key to a Healthy Community", because we believe that family is the foundation for a healthy community. There would be plenary sessions and workshops on topics of "Supporting Family in Turmoil- Youth Substance Abuse in Action", "Caring for the Sick- Family's Role in Looking After Patients with Chronic Illnesses" and "Meeting Special Needs of Children and Adolescent in Schools". Our target participants are professionals from the fields of medical, nursing, allied health, social work, education and public. We hope that professionals from each sector could provide us with new inspiration in building a healthy community, and we expect that the Symposium could bring in more chances of collaboration with community partners.


The Committee would also like to invite submission of abstracts from you for sharing your valuable experience with us. Authors of selected papers will be invited for an eight-minute oral presentation or poster exhibition at the Symposium. The Notes on Abstract Submission and sample abstract are enclosed to facilitate your preparation of abstract. Awards will be given out at the Symposium for the best presentations and best posters. All submitted abstracts would be published in the Symposium Booklet and on internet.

Please submit your paper and consent (attachment 1) to Ms. Winky SUEN (swn078, on or before 2 April 2010.
