Volunteering in the Hong Kong Special Olympic Healthy Athletes Programme, Health Promotion
17 Jan 2015
On 17th Jan 2015, students from the Higher Diploma in Nutrition and Food Management programme joined the volunteer service under the area of Health Promotion in the 2015 Hong Kong Special Olympic (HKSO) Healthy Athletes Programme, which was held in the Ma On Shan stadium. The Special Olympics Healthy Athletes programme offers health service and information to athletes in more than 120 countries.
Our students assisted in anthropometric measurement and nutrition promotion for the athletes so as to increase their awareness on healthy balanced diet. This was a precious chance for our students to participate in a large-scale community service to promote healthy eating. The event was successfully finished in a welcoming and fun environment.
