Time / Programme


Film Screening & Discussion

An award-winning 2012 documentary Go GrandRider (不老騎士) launched the same year as the MBBS Medical Humanities curriculum. The film records the remarkable adventure of a group of octogenarians riding scooters across Taiwan, despite their families’ worries and fears, on a grand adventure that proves dreams and passion don’t fade away with the onset of old age. A post-screening discussion with teachers/ community partners who bring ageing issues to the MH curriculum.


Reception / Art Exhibition & Medical Humanities Curriculum Showcase (Exhibition Area)

Featuring a fascinating 10-year retrospective of award-winning creative works by medical students, snapshots of the diverse learning experiences in the medical humanities curriculum, and ‘Health by Design’, a curated exhibition of vintage Hong Kong public health posters. Browse and chat with our students, teachers and exhibition curator over light refreshments!
