About the Event

The President of Fung Scholars Hong Kong Chapter, Kevin Lo (FS06/07, CityU)  is organizing an online sharing with Hong Kong Student Association of Neuroscience (HKSAN) next Sat (Mar 13). For details, please see below:


Dear Fung Scholars,


Following the first successful webinar with Hong Kong Student Association of Neuroscience (HKSAN), our scholars learnt a lot from their professional sharing in neuroscience. We are now excited to continue Episode 2 this year with the topic: Depression in COVID-19 Times. To overcome the adversities together, we would like to extend the invitation to all Fung Scholars and their families and friends for this meaningful topic and webinar event.

Under the COVID-19 pandemic, our mental health could be gradually influenced without being noticed. Depression, a commonly applied term, could possibly lead to serious impacts, much more serious than you could imagine, attributed to our ignorance towards potential patients. We are excited to announce that HKSAN has invited Dr Sandra S.M. Chan, Associate Professor (Clinical) from the Faculty of Medicine, CUHK, to talk about depression in COVID-19 times. Throughout the 1-hour event, ways to identify and communicate with depression patients from the perspective of a psychiatrist will be covered, followed by a Q&A session.


The session details are as follows:

Topic: Depression in COVID-19 Times
Date: March 13th, 2021 (Saturday)
Time: 1400-1500
Location: Online Zoom
Language: Cantonese & English
Enrollment: Please contact Kevin Lo, mobile/Signal/WhatsApp: 6628 8381. The conference link will be sent out individually.
